lyrics

and all I want is to be reconciled
a saw or two was nothing to deny
you think divinity comes easily?
what happens when there’s nothing more to give?

and all the rabbits have been exiled down
down under to a place they’ll never be found
the bevy of doves have all escaped
I’m sure you’ll continue to find a way

and vanishing tricks are good only when
you reappear somehow in the end
better bring out attendants, better bring out nudity
so that none of us catch this, so we don’t miss your trickery

as if converting to your religion
would make us all into magicians
I thought you were my reflection
but he was just a double in position (imposition)

and you inhale those mirrors
and you exhale that smoke

but the only way that he’ll get a break is to sell all of his secrets to a cheap tv network now

don’t you love how the brain invents enemies?
don’t you love how the ego makes something out of nothing
and nothing out of something?

so just extract all the really good shit
and all the animals you wish to forget
drown them down in a tank, a water trap
force feed them to a bunch of amnesiacs

work on the subway station has begun
the city streets have become overrun with
people dying to get a glimpse of your face
you’ll appear on a crane one of these days
