lyrics

cut me down by tooth or by tusk
I am a husk
jelly under leathery crust
I am a husk
get the point or at least the thrust?
I'm a husk
I have been crushed

shy away from my distinctive musk
I got the stink upon me now

trap my leg by trick or by trust
gullible husk
make the call you seem to think you must
(I'm not so sure personally)
cooperative husk
scratch my stupid name into the dust.
everyone must know
there was a husk.

to exist alone
hapless
helpless
weightless

*

hello husk, I am the meat
I've de-adhered
we've been degloved

meat man is stepping out tonight
cane in hand, a twinkle in the eye

now I'll do what you can't
how was I you? you are like an ant
now I'll do what you can't
how was I you? you are like an ant

meat man is stepping out tonight
cane in hand, a twinkle in the eye

now I'll do what you can't
how was I you? you are like an ant
now I'll do what you can't
how was I you? you are like an ant

everybody shake the meat man's hooks
glad-hand the meathooks
everybody shake the meat man's hooks
glad-hand the meathooks
line up single file to get a look
see how the meat cooks
we're all hanging from the meathooks
