Your face has gone but you look the same
Ease the pain
You never told me about your past
Under glass
Your stability making sense
In the present tense
You’re just a farmer without a plough
Well it’s my turn now

Coffins, coffins
My heart is a coffin
Cousins remember
Not to forget
A native thinker
Tries to sleep
But we know that sometimes
There’s nothing to keep

We like to motivate matricide

Ha uh ha uh ha

Somehow the message is getting through
Just for you
The troops are gathering in my arm
But they mean no harm
Bullets are porno stars in my gun
Would you like some?
Bad decisions and broken phones
Flesh and bones

Dirty, unhealthy
Dying, gone
Clean up, scrub
Much to be done
Fainting and falling
Unconscious, dead
Wash up the blood
Sever the head

Downstairs is where they bless
In their armchairs of excess
Upstairs is just a mess
Without a care they repossess
The breast is so grotesque
We protest against the desk
Manifest picturesque
A nest of the new burlesque
I bet you glorify
The sweat of her night sky
Hamlet starts to cry
He upset the lullaby
Could you describe the tide?
You cannot bribe her pride
A tribe trying to hide
Circumscribe the outside
Meanwhile I’ve got the knife
I smile at the afterlife
A senile midwife
Reconciles the lowlife
Bedtime for Caroline
A lifetime of alkaline
Springtime is anodyne
Nursery rhymes in the moonshine
Fight against the paradise
Fright alone will not suffice
Daylight will be coming twice
I might follow your advice
My fist is like a womb
We must assist the bridegroom
My list is filled with gloom
Chemist in the bathroom
I’m vicious and I’m poor
Malicious and I want more
Ambitious to the core
Superstitious of peace and war
Sadistic, yes I knew
Linguistic shade of blue
Statistic mild shampoo
Nihilistic point of view
