lyrics

mistakes were made
that's what some claimed
well, I'll say.

the face is so generous
to give so much away
hit the bumps, then the swell came

I wasn't forewarned
that you were eight-armed

the arc of an ilk
the ilk of the likes of you
lips extrude silk
nipples give spidermilk
fountaining in the arc of an ilk.

your lies could fill ocean-sized holes.
by which I mean they're numerous.
your dissertations were voluminous
and strained

tracings, tracings, your drawings are tracings
left to me to see you're tracing movie frames.
gaming, gaming, an artist, you claim.
an artist, you claim.
an artist, you claim.
an artist, you claim.
an artist, you claim.
an artist, you claim.

and now I don't dream anymore
this new medication is working out great
and I'm finally getting some sleep

the arc of an ilk
the ilk of the likes of you
lips extrude silk
nipples give spidermilk
fountaining in the arc of an ilk
