lyrics

I'm sucking sadness from your guts
an ugly mug that thrills and cuts
bile and burden
lymph and blood
our surreal sermon
never shuts

I am the laughter in your heart
as arteries narrow, feeble, tart
meat that burgeons
perfect art
on display
on coffin carts

everything to be
and everything to happen
lives or just dies
and is forgotten

snaps and sighs
and is forgiven
rotten
You are rotten
and reborn

You're staining leaves, sharpening thorns
a feeble tongue that now adorns
the hubris in your scented cries
the nectar streaming from your eyes
you drip I swallow
feast and wallow
calyx, soma, candycoma
munching, crunching, suffocate

everything to be
and everything to happen
lives or just dies
and is forgotten
snaps and sighs
and is forgiven
rotten
rotten
rotten
rotten
from the blossom
to the bottom
misbegotten
