lyrics

I help myself to her gifts
Dished up with every shake of her hips
They bring me out from under my stone
Like an animal without a backbone

In the light of the moon
She’ll remake my face
Glass eyes, cat’s eyes tied in place
Frayed lips part from
A fracture-like grin
Felt-tip lines on tightened skin

An under-bite, a jaw wired shut
Words tangled up
Vulpine vowels, an inarticulate howl
The things I’ve seen
In those magazines…

Last night the stars were wreathed in black
I stared into the void
And the void stared back
I’ll wait here for what I like
I’ll wait here for what I lack
