lyrics

1.
Am I wasting my time?
It's rotten inside; a tinder house of pride.
Aged and infirm;
A grim little squirm; It's ticklish with germs.
But I’ll soon have it done.
I’ll scatter the scum and then let in some sun.

2.
And the people in here?
They’re echoes and fears. Our worries keep them near.
I’ll pretend I’m alone, the only one home;
just let them shriek and moan.
I’ll take it apart and make a new start.
I’ll slice away the rot.

End Part A
“That man’s a wan and pale, serrated saw! There’s determination in his square-set jaw!
His industry has eaten all the boards and his toilet is become a sunken moor!
If he’s going to carry on like this, one’s hopes are shattered for domestic bliss!
He doesn’t even seem to notice us! His words are fired from a blunderbuss!”

End Part B
(I’ve run aground on the crooked, cracked and crumbling rocks of spectral agitation.
My efforts are haunted, my actions are hindered by the vaporous void.)

Terrified tangents flit in the periphery!
Gesticulating gentry lurching quite insensibly!

(I’m thoroughly astonished; once calm now fell and demonic; every crooked chamber is a fresh frustration.
Up in the tallest branches, there are no fewer chances to leave tracks in the thick, thick dust.)
