lyrics

I served you well
congealing, how the tastes gel
how fine a wine to offset the perfect entree
how sweet it is for you to chew on this
cartilaginous tissue

lick up the remains of those who
brought their broken marrow bones to you

feed me
feed me
red meat
when you serve man
feed me spleen
when you serve man

strange how we obtain
our nourishment from others'
hearts and brains
and hide the faded stains of past extractions
and actions you'll be leaving in the past

feed me
feed me
red meat
when you serve man
feed me spleen
when you serve man

drinking the sweat of a drowning man
drinking the sweat of a drowning man
