lyrics

Completely black but mostly gold
grotesque in form but perfectly designed

concrete and cocaine
agoramanic
reads like a Kafka
sounds like an Ives

well I got up and walked toward the river in the dark
where I could see the entirety

loquacious digits of the deaf blithely
tickle the burns all down your back

jewel of an eye
don’t let me down
I don’t wanna die

Switzerland seems like a dream now heavenly in retrospect
the vision of 100 reapers grim but grinning around the bed

honestly, kissing you was easier with them around
now everything I say or do seems a little bit insincere

David found a body in the brush behind his studio
some Bushwick kid fell off the roof his bicycle still locked out front

Laura knows just what to say to raise the dead, to operate
the peace inside her mouth only enough to soothe a single sour night

maybe he’s just a number
maybe these things still matter
remember I said I’d clean up
well I’m not so sure that’s happening

another headless weekend
another coked up yuppie
a bullet in the muscle
a steel blade in the gut

of everyone you care for
of everyone you’ve numbered
of every choked up yuppie
too proud to hide their face

I can feel my shadow mount
the saddle of my psyche
and I know something’s changed

you’re shallowing your breath
and now you’re waking up with bruises
I know I have changed

jewel of an eye don’t let me die
