lyrics

Oh, isn't it nice? I'm loved. I'm fat. My garden is loooooooooming. Dad's got rock doves on the roof and the cats in the sun room are blooming.

Isn't it nice knowing that I'm happy and if I go mad it'll be from disease?
Encouraged and brave, I march into attics and laugh at the monkey, at the halberd, at the bust...

The carpets are thin and fantastic; the tacks will stick you when you crawl. And every shadow in the den, in the hall, is a gray, granite cellar breathing brown leaves in the fall.

Mother's white, virginal, grandmother, too, and every man is a hero and a saint. But Satan infects jungles overseas and makes the Hottentots there don warpaint.

Isn't it nice knowing that I'm happy and if I go mad it'll be from disease?
Encouraged and brave, I march into attics and laugh at the monkey, at the halberd, at the bust...

The plumbing is rusted and choked with bugs, but the water's like an unfurrowed brow. When someone falls, I'll draw their hands in dusklight, show the furious beetles, then bow.
