lyrics

One small sound—
One small word
In tongues all over the world—
I said it,
I said it,
One small word—
I said it,
I didn't,
I said it,
I didn't—
Tongues all over—

Can't pick them out,
Can't press them in;
I'll never hide my scars—
Can't pick them out,
Can't press them in;
I'll never hide my scars—
I'll never hide my scars—

One small sound—
One small sight—
One unsheathed knife
Must glint
In an alternate timeline's light:
One rust-ridden blade
Juts out
Of a friendly moonstruck shape to
Tear, tear terribly,
Terribly,
Tear, tear terribly,
The delicate crepe of night—

Familiarity breeds:
Indifference.
Familiarity breeds:
Discontent.
Familiarity breeds:
Indifference.
Familiarity breeds:
Discontent.

My other time machine:
A pungent, putrid
Brownish-green
November smile
Blandishing
My two-timing door—

One small sound—
One small bite—
One tomial tooth—
One Loggerhead Shrike
Must skewer
My invertebrate doppelgänger
On barbed wire
In a parallel universe—

My tongue parallelly bleeds
One small drop
In a monthful of blood
On tongues all over the world—
I said it,
I didn't—
It doesn't
Matter what I said
Or didn't;
Admit it:
You were never
Going to get it—
I was always
Gonna get it.

Can't pick them out,
Can't press them in;
I'll never hide my scars—
Can't pick them out,
Can't press them in;
I'll never hide my—

Familiarity breeds:
_____________.
Familiarity breeds:
_____________.

Not only is it thicker,
Blood is stickier than water—
Maybe that's
Relevant somehow—
Can I explode now?
