wwwwThrough a side-door secretly www29 November 2008


wwwwwSpilling beans inside of me
wwwwwcatching all the corners of me
wwwwwfind existence in a room
wwwwwby its absence like a vacuum

wwwwwToday's the day the angel died
wwwwwtoday the world fell flat and cried
wwwwwdoing life for crazy dreams
wwwwwfeel the knife for crazy schemes

wwwwwAll the subjects become objects
wwwwwboiling up in special effects
wwwwwmaybe my blood twists
wwwwwat the insistence of a serpent
wwwwwinsistence of a serpent

wwwwwWasn't there when you saw me
wwwwwwatching all the holes in me
wwwwwget to see who exits
wwwwwthrough a side-door secretly
wwwwwthrough a side-door secretly

wwwwwDo I have to be bought and sold
wwwwwwhen the story gets too old
wwwwwfor the accidental death
wwwwwof a headline while I'm
wwwwwwatching ritual washing
wwwwwof spike heels in the rain
wwwwwslick as all the young bucks
wwwwwcutting quick again

wwwwwCan't relent
wwwwwor give up contempt
wwwwwor Lent and learn to grieve
wwwwwmake love, make lust and make-believe
wwwwwmake love, make lust and make-believe

wwwwwWasn't there when you saw me
wwwwwwatching all the holes in me
wwwwwget to see who exits
wwwwwthrough a side-door secretly
wwwwwthrough a side-door secretly
wwwwwthrough a side-door secretly
wwwwwthrough a side-door secretly
