Your eyes are like times
Your eyes are like people
Your eyes are like failures to see

My eyes are like rhymes
My mother's backyard
Covered with pine needles
Stabbing your eyes

The ground it is misty
Fence is silver sharp-spikes

Out on the edge where I can't see
Out on the periphery

He wasn't right in the head
I may not be right
Birds sang of the murder
A train in the night

He wasn't right in the head
Sang Goodnight Irene
Not a man or a woman
Or anything like me

Out on the edge where I can't see
Out on the periphery
Out on the edge where I can't see
Out on the periphery

Beyond the periphery
Where many martyrs fell
How far into my defect
Am I?

Beyond the periphery
Where many martyrs fell
How far into my defect
Am I?

Sometimes my song
Obliterates yours
Your book is terrible
Violent and long

So what did you
Do in your song
I picked up Osiris
But I am not Isis

Looked into a void of love
I fell in it

Out on the edge where I can't see
Out on the periphery
Out on the edge where I can't see
Out on the periphery
Out on the edge where I can't see
Out on the periphery
