I picked the most appetizing flowers from these gardens I know of virgin thighs. Anointed them in your sweat. Sat them in a glass, and took the bench between your hips.

These are beautiful wooden legs you have to stand on

Take me lying down.

I played my heart out on your rib cage and you tried to sing along
But the keys I chose: sour notes
And your singing turned to moan

This is the sound of our dying insides

Everyone was sleeping. Slaves to a gutted imagination. The lights of the television sprayed us into shadows on a wall. We: new faceless mannequins. We: new oil spills. With no eyes, how is it you cry. With no smile, how is it you laugh. Closer now. Our shadows move like one. Back and forth.
Our machine lips:
We the machine would like to speak. We razorblade chocolates. We watch her in sleep. We're here to pronounce your children blind. Led them astray and toyed with their lives. We taught them sex and muted their laughter.

    General Commenti think this song is about growing up in a way. As soon as you are introduced to sex the laughing and innocence of your childhood is gone.

    General CommentIt think it's about that, but more so that a lot of our childhood is robbed because of media influences dealing with sex overexposure.

    General CommentI agree with the last two comments, this song seems to be about losing your innocence too early because of the way the world is.

    Plus, Johnny Gourley of Portugal. The Man/Anatomy of a Ghost does backups on this song.
