lyrics

Ambition is strange:
In ditches and silver cups,
a barrier comes unstuck;
the noise excites in surprise
like a bumbling child
that'll make you smile
in spite of all unexplained
and dismembered and muddled up,
where strength of will is not enough
to let respire
the good corrective or parable.
And who will express
from a mount underwater
with serpents in their eyes
that it's hard to believe in anything,
to assess or analyse?
Too much attention
feeding out to a visible pulp
who spoke of marrying
the non-essential
with uncritical ascension,
and as the venom sinks into your back,
the gene expires;
the canine looks into your eyes
and says: “Well, it's quite alright!”
They built an easel for you;
the one role you never played
was that of draughtsman unassuaged,
the pencil not an incentive
to hold a crown
and it's not enough
to misattribute and lie,
small like a laughing dog,
when the moon's oh so full:
Are moons outright
hard for you to believe in?
With victories over,
with cemeteries swollen,
the woods like an ocean:
Feel this elation with me!
Cherish this absurdity!
The crucial irrelevance!
The infinite knife's edge!
