Get clay in your hands and push, push with your thumbs
until you see a shape that catches your eye
A mouse on a raft with her face curled into herself
Tail curled around herself

Don't let the repetition get to you or so close that you can't tell the difference

Give into the noisiness
Make up words by mumbling until you find
the one that you like best
Let go of the microphone
God knows the work that always goes into ourselves

So don't let the repetition get to you or so close that you can't tell the difference


Bury your first place medals on your eyes in the ground where they belong
Wake up to sounds of garbage

Again when you step out, rusted clouds
No one else, you're all alone
Take a short walk contented with the world you know

There's a voice where once just lay a melody, now it calls out a name
Elizabeth, those good intentions slipped askew
Bent and blurred now you must learn
to redefine an ideal life
and while we're kind we're driven by the want to feel a love
which never will completely satisfy
and leaves you sleepless and lonely tonight



from Mechanical Bride, released November 2, 2010
