lyrics

There's a slight on the day
to the sound of your name,
but they don't have a clue.
As you buckle and break
and try hard not betray
that it never was you.
So you smile, show your teeth
with the greatest of ease,
though it brings no relief
from the weight of the truth:
that the fruits of all you ever do
are rotten through and through.

Now your failures become
your successes in turn,
'cause you've nothing to lose
when you withstand the confusion
pressing down on your lungs --
well, what else can you do?
And you fear getting lost
in the unending thought
that you've already lost
a little part of what's you,
when it all falls apart from overuse
and is stuck back in part with glue.

So, when your heart turns blue,
all raw and undercooked --
hemmed-in by brittle bones
and caulked in body fluids;
when your guilt blooms
from the bud of a bruise:
everyone can see through you
and that knowing look
of being for whatever you can use.

See, all that was good
has been chewed-up and ruined
by the sinews of virtue
you hold everyone else to.
