lyrics

mon ami
a life of pity
you are now
manually breathing

forcing your blinking from the overburdened grind
no longer swallowing, paranoid and blind
insomniatic madness, a malfunctioning mind
untreated, unreachable, unbeloved, unkind

the hole in the wall that you crawled out of
the neck of the bottle that you crawled out of
the x-rated world that you crawled out of
the life after dark that you crawled out of

maddening, robotic tears
more dangerous, genuine fears
blasphemous, combative
i'll never know why i was so in love

accost with bad manners for societal display
assembling your bad words, affirming what they say
serpent like destruction with nowhere left to stay
your transparent love, your obvious malaise

the tip of the straw that you crawled out of
the point of the needle that you crawled out of
the smoke from the pipe that you crawled out of
the steam of the stem that you crawled out of

but have you seen me lately and have you seen yourself
and have you seen your parents and have you seen yourself
and have you seen the children and have you seen yourself
and have you seen your lover who hasn't seen your self

the ice melts slow
and it takes so long
and i've got love
but i'm not that strong

but have you seen your sister and have you seen yourself
and have you seen your mother and have you seen yourself
and have you seen your preacher and have you seen yourself
and have you seen your doctor who hasn't seen your self

i've got a map
i've got a gun
i've got a light as bright as the sun
as bright as the sun

the hole in the wall that you crawled out of
the neck of the bottle that you crawled out of
the x-rated world that you crawled out of
the life after dark that you crawled out of

the shock from the shell that you crawled out of
the bucket in the well that you crawled out of
the thread from the sock that you crawled out of
the sand from the glass that you crawled out of

i've got a light as bright as the sun
as bright as the sun
