fling the pigs carcass over your shoulder
hang your cap on the face of the pig
the policeman raped you in his office

the fat cop has answered the question of
is this happening?
with a bowie knife tipped like a screw

you are free from depression
the tear in your body
has freed you
from having a mind at all
it is perfect
you are perfect
you are perfect

daphny daphny

knot the neck of an ostrich around your arm and
punch that bird in the face
in an instant you are rewarded with its meat

and men of power have raped you
for shoplifting an X-box
take a photo of your friend vomiting on your head

you are free from depression
the tear in your mind
has freed you
from having a body at all
enjoy life!
enjoy life!
enjoy this life!

    General CommentI like the way Jamie sings: "Enjoy life, enjoy life, enjoy this life," - the context makes the sense of these lines opposite to its literal meaning, brings the dramatic motif. This device's quite often used in Xiu Xiu songs, for example, in one of my favourite lines ever from Bog People: "There will always be a headless neck, there will always be hapiness". As for me, it's not only about this world's morbidness and cruelty, but also about its breadth.
