Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

Pig Iron

when you share a burning candle
the wax will run on down
cover you in parafin glue
they'll laugh you out of town

when you talk to the carcass king
remember to bow low
get the gurney in position
you might need a tow
you might need a tow

 get some manxsome agitators
line them up at dawn
raise the flag, you motherfuckers
they're bleeding on the white house lawn

i guess we'll make it through somehow
i guess we'll dance in berlin
europe rides across the plains
where the hell have you been
just where the hell you've been?

they cut the cord on the broken baby
they closed the mystic cave
soldiers coming for the daughter
now she's smoking at the rave

denizens of dreary county
raised their fists last night
they did not have further plans
still, 'twas quite a sight

i guess we'll make it through somehow
i guess we'll dance in berlin
europe rides across the plains
where the hell have you been
just where the hell you've been?

i keep waiting for the preacher
to really improvise
when it comes to loaves and fishes
still he sharpens knives

put your cloven hooves together
dance the jitterbug
cut your ribs in little rows
then cut yourself a rug
cut yourself a rug

i guess we'll make it through somehow
i guess we'll dance in berlin
europe rides across the plains
where the hell have you been
just where the hell you've been?

when you share a burning candle
the wax will run on down
cover you in parafin glue
they'll laugh you out of town

when you talk to the carcass king
remember to bow low
get the gurney in position
you might need a tow
you might need a tow
