lyrics

Aching empty, full of sour milk
The carton frozen numb and it was poorly built
Put the cold on the strain, test if illness is feigned, then boil whatever's leftover

Wake up old having missed and red from perfume and piss
Embarrassment changed but not vanished
Lay on concrete's cold thigh, keeping fresh this round's cries
The tears, well they'll just dry up with your body

Did the swelling go down on the Carnival Clown?
Are his features as pronounced as they were?
Hold his jowls, are they laughs or are they growls hears in a lapse?
One could never be sure but his face muscles
I saw them birds, they were bathing in dirt
But it's a different kind of bird up in here
I saw them birds, they were bathing in dirt
It's a different kind of bird up in here

Stylish gown, green's your hue, I bid you bienvenue
Dignity's down, she's not breathing
Wipe your sweat, raise your chin and march with full conviction
This façade is only fake if you let it

Run run run just as fast as you can
As soon as they catch you, well they'll throw you in the can
Pull your eyes from the dark and hang a grin on your lips
They wouldn't look directly at your solar eclipse

Did the swelling go down on the Carnival Clown?
Are his features as pronounced as they were?
Hold his jowls, are they laughs or are they growls hears in a lapse?
One could never be sure but his face muscles
I saw them birds, they were bathing in dirt
But it's a different kind of bird up in here
I saw them birds, they were bathing in dirt
It's a different kind of bird up in here
I saw them birds, they were bathing in dirt
But it's a different kind of bird up in here
I saw them birds, they were bathing in dirt
It's a different kind of bird up in here
