Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Cook Me Inside Out

we have a monster who performs a trick or two
makes lightning in the morning dew, quite a stew
lights up the stadium where kids kick the balls
until the kids all fall
down
all fall down

split the atom and collect the change
cool your heels, put out the flames
the waters rise, the waves arrive
happy to meet you, happy to be alive
happy until the kids all fall
down
happy until the kids fall down

flick on a switch
make the pinballs go round and round
make me a coffee
with electric glowing grounds
going round
plug in the iMac
before the juice is gone
and something goes wrong
cook me inside out

we have a gentleman from Shangri-La
he took a plug to the Himalayas
give me a mountain and a three prong plug
i am become death, happy to give a hug
happy until the kids all fall
down
all fall down

i get the jitters when the ground starts to shake
i got a feeling we're all going to bake
they say that heaven was too much to load
eternity wasn't built to code...happy, oh, oh
happy until the kids all fall
down
happy until the kids fall down

flick on a switch
make the pinballs go round and round
make me a coffee
with electric glowing grounds
going round
plug in the iMac
before the juice is gone
and something goes wrong
cook me inside out
