Track Name: Desire to be understood complicated by the inability to communicate
lend an ear
stolen years
safety words
crackle & curse
easy bath
burning rash
open hand
empty hand

take some chronic smog
rise it with a dew drop
dry it in a cup
clean it with a toothbrush
crush it into dust
mix in sugar rosebuds
bake it in a pie crust
wash it down with warm blood

cozy notes
frozen codes
nimble tongues
swollen lungs

take an empty jar
cut a small hole on top
feed in strips of rope
fill with dinosaur bones
shake til they dissolve
find two poisonous hearts
rub them for a blue spark
Track Name: The body will sing again
have you danced in an empty hall
thrown open a hidden door
nailed shadows to the wall

have you looked through bells of glass
tried to eat a plate of ash
hitched a ride before a crash

blinding sounds in flight
screaming beams of light

the body will sing again!
electric visions
I never want to die – waiting, fading

have you lain on a bed of rust
taken shelter in a bus
killed the day at the crack of dusk

have you put pride to the test
drew a scar on simple flesh
pushed moderation to excess

no answer, no answer
for fear is a cancer

the body will sing again!
all there is there is there to use
Track Name: "..."
now what’s this? goddamned thugs saying that they matter. well that takes a lot of nerve, you know? what about my life? you know what matters in this world, huh? respect. hey boy – you want justice? how about an honest job instead? hey boy – you think you’re special? You think I got a hand out to be the man I am today? and now you all want more. you can already wear that thing as short as you want honey. but don’t say it’s my fault if something happens, heh yeah. Oh what’s that? you got some attitude on you you little stuck up cow. Oh what’s that? yeah I knew after taking one look what you’re all about.
Track Name: Freak flag
don’t wanna lie
don’t wanna hate you
but our eyes are setting suns
and we need to wake up

I won’t resign
I won’t forsake you
but I won’t wait and decay
in a sterile vacuum

let’s put the shield down
take an injection
clear the stale air
get a new infection

let’s feel our skin blister
hear our bones twist up
feel our nerves give in
see our veins open

and bleed the shame away
not every end’s unwelcome
when it’s escape
Track Name: Daisy pusher
look inside for what you lack
and it thunders deeply
turn away from what you dread
it multiplies rapidly
out to get you
