lyrics

THE BIG SHIT

I've been a child longer than is appropriate
I put on big boy clothing but it never seems to fit
My words all lose their meaning while preening peacocks kill
Gravedigger fornicators looking for a hole to fill
A nursing home for heartless butchers - contagious boredom blooms
Symptoms painted on the walls in long deserted glooms
Pictures posing - noses turning up into the burning talk
Smitten witless wonder whimpers - endless shit to fill a crock

A peaceful state of mind - the ducks all in a row
The fervent fist of justice always claiming it is so
A pile of broken toys - a decoy that annoys
So polish up your grab-ass ploys and go impress the big boys
(chorus)
Hey buddy can I get a piece of your big highbrow?
I wanna be a big shot - to be the big shit now
(x2)

We made a monument to worship nothing
the plushest animals leaking precious stuffing
Always(sometimes) something other - smothered ashes on a shelf
Warring factions fractioned oddly into fragments of a self
Trickle down into a puddle muddled with the sentient
Primordial the urges begging on until the guilts repent
Red hot screamin' demon stirs pots of wayfaring semen
Diamond/drab - am I ungleaming? Fuck it all! I must be dreaming...

You're in a nightmare now - and you'll never get out
All the creatures in the cupboards gonna gut you like a fish
You're in a nightmare now - and no matter how you pout
Your prayers will not be answered - no matter how hard you wish
(chorus)
