lyrics

The way to stop’s a moment wrought well away from you.
The topless tank or tease must seem, now, a bit confused.
It’s only a subterfuge, a ruse, an old Shinto lavolt,
A catapult’s occult opt-alt gestalt assault.

The kickback throws me back ten rows.

Okay, okay, okay. I get it now.
The curtain of sand’s a curse.
A space remains: my safe ascetic cowl.
I keep a curve in my hands, a curve.

I’ve run the whole conversation to a single red rut:
“I cut a straight line, sucka, if you want to act up.”
But what’s a vampire sucking on a St. Bernard’s muff,
When I’ve chewed through a Swiss chard guard and now I’m just getting drunk?

I think it’s all in my head:
The stage and steed hypotheses
Keep leading instead,
To violent streaks of chivalry.
This burgeoning rep,
“Your face. My feet. They meet. We’re stompin’,”
Is breaking to set and forget it
In spurts at best, but not that often.

“It’s Cambridge, dear. Don’t waste your ear.”

Okay, okay, okay. I get it now.
The curtain of sand’s a curse.
A space remains: my safe ascetic cowl.
I keep a curve in my hands, a curve.

It’s only something I want, only something I…
Only something I want, only something I don’t need.
Only something I want, only something I…
Only something I want, only something that’s owed me.

And when reminding myself
“Don’t fret and fuss, you make too much,”
Is it so bad for my health
To kvetch and cuss and raise a ruckus?
My veteran excuse begins
“If the glove doesn’t fit, you acquit!” In this system
A celebrant Scrooge is
Concluding “I’ll pitch my tents and ply the pulpits.”

It’s only something I want, only something I…
Only something I want, only something I don’t need.
Only something I want, only something I…
Only something I want, only something that’s owed me.
