taps the glass
squints his eyes
prays a steady state will
fill the screen
spoke too soon, yeah
it's no surprise
it's the art of the mess
no bleach can clean
he stakes a claim
he claims it loud
loud enough for alluvus to know
that he ain't quite gone
and made the rounds
what don't matter to him
don't exist at all

what's the use
of patchin' cracks on toppa the fault line?
be what may
scream unto
he fingers through to findin' the truth and
when all is right and all eyes are reclaimed...

no. no. no. no.

he would be the first to scream.

once again
the double standards are in effect
and where's the money coming from?
and maybe the white guys'll pay for it
kakapoo through the roof
sayin' nothin' in time with the
rank and file

do you care to examine the frequency
of hives a'mindin' their infancy?
cross-burning privilege of sink to swim
that's the point of this!
