lyrics

Weeping behind your opposite
Fists denied their openness
Desire hidden in the cabinet
Oh, private property!
Oh, adoration!
Thoughts pierced,
caught in prayer
Obscure intentions laid bare
The mind is echoing
The mind is haunted
The portrait's eyes are following you

The communards feast gleefully
The weight lifters flex furiously
The witches shop for ointments and brooms
The ferocious invalids ignore their wounds
Stare at others on the street
What's required isn't
compulsory
Sirens (as in police) draw us in
Our madness is deliberate

Contradictions amounting to
the same thing,
the same view
Bless the comedians
and spit at the past
Despotic idiots spoke of
"Bourgeois science"
"Jewish mathematics"
Language will see itself out the door
