They confiscated my library card
When they caught me in the stacks with a knife
Cutting pictures of Curtis LeMay
From a 1950 volume of 'Life'

Don't care if some scholar's annoyed
Don't care if his archive's destroyed
All of yesterday's current events, you see to me
They're just collage elements

And I've been banned from the grocery store
I was brandishing my blade down the shelves
Slicing labels from innocent cans,
Now they can't even advertise themselves to themselves

Don't care if this package contains
Nine wholesome American grains
Brand names off of famed condiments, you see to me
They're just collage elements

So fetch me the good scissors
And bring me a bottle of glue
And bring me a postcard landscape
To insert these elements into

Sheet music and circuitry boards,
Chair caning and parachute cords,
Bus tickets and medical charts,
Knives and leaves and sevens of hearts,
Gleaned portraits of dead presidents, you see to me
They're just collage elements
