lyrics

start out with drums
walk down these hills
and realize that this land is steeped in blood
and wildflowers start to explode there
a cornucopia of sound
the grasses of rythm
church-goers only pray
when life starts to edge away
they drink wine and in the glasses shatter
flesh flays
cut tendons filet
spinal cord
feathered dress dancing
the ghost of the headless chief flutters astray
in long burning winds
hieronymus bosch gets up from his chair
purses his wrinkled face
and decides that my life is gruesome enough
to make into a picture
and blood is red
and water colliding with sand is called a beach
and I can not wait to see
and blood is red
and hot water is there at the sink
and can be turned on with the handle in easy reach
and blood is all the same when it mixes together
and the face in the mirror is turning to spatters of paint
slit my wrist and ride away on that wave
