No blind spots in the leopard's eyes
Can only help to jeopardize
The lives of lambs, the shepherd cries 

An outdoor life for a silverfish
Eternal dust less ticklish
Than the clean room, a houseguest's wish

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide?
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide?
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth

Face worker, a serpentine miner
A roof falls, an under-liner
Of leaf structure, the egg timer

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide?
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide? 
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide? (he lies on his side)
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth (is he trying to hide?)

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide? (he lies on his side)
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth (is he trying to hide?)

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide? (he lies on his side)
In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth (is he trying to hide?)

Wire

A wire is a single, usually cylindrical, flexible strand or rod of metal. Wires are used to bear mechanical loads and to carry electricity and telecommunications signals. Wire is commonly formed by drawing the metal through a hole in a die or draw plate. Standard sizes are determined by various wire gauges. The term wire is also used more loosely to refer to a bundle of such strands, as in 'multistranded wire', which is more correctly termed a wire rope in mechanics, or a cable in electricity. more »
