lyrics

Two flat eyes
frame a thin smile
borne in a statue;
the pale marble lines
trace figments
of an unchanging agent;
the majesty of its form
evokes the soaring infinite.

Cased in rock,
the ancient God
by which all is measured
is falling apart, is vapour;
ceaseless, shifting events
cloud from view the face
of a ‘was’ that was not.
The work that brought you life,
how did it end up like this?

But charitably, those
in civil prairie homes
bawl down, enlightening
the dumb recipients
of systems that must lie
over their heads!

**

[!!!]
There is no choice of answer
when you're desperate, when you're kept
from setting the agenda.

“I've had it to here!”
sounds the terrified cry of the white cis male,
but it is not up to him(?):

“Ideas of sheer bile that
fester over genuine pillory”;

the subject is left boxed in
with the wrong question,
you then condemn.

Feel in this moment
the roofs over our heads glitch;
the hours evaporate

**

There are holes in our villages that knell a curse,
that cast shadows; there are voids in the crust of the earth
where sons and husbands were sent and they found their work.
We are saddled with a mission all our days:
Find purpose through emptiness.
When the pits of our hearts go unfilled,
(it) breeds terror and ire, and their aims (are) fulfilled.

**

It is a human desire
Fill nothing with fire
It is human desire
Build something with fire
It is the God/man tier
Set the other on fire
Be the taker of power
Set the rest on fire

It is the human desire
Fill the nothing with fire
The God rises higher
Kill something with fire
He is a crook and a liar
It is the God/man tier
Fill the nothing with fire
Set the rest on fire
