Rollcall

Then I wore rags, a beggar in the sand

You did not speak my name

No you best not speak my name

Bow your head and turn away

 

When you raised your eyes

I held up a withered hand

For all the wives to see

Rained on down a thousand stars

Maimed every boy to be

 

Can’t you see the vapour that I breathe, corruptibility

Original sin, the failure that we breed,

scratch the name from the roll

 

I was a father a mother and a child

I pray the silent pleas

Built my empire on a hoard of concessions

Like pulling baby teeth

 

Speak and call to bear

All your boyfriends of yore

They’re timid as the breeze

One look, one word, they’re scattered on the floor

Now come and dance upon the seeds 

 

Can’t you see the vapour that I breathe, corruptibility

Original sin, the failure that we breed,

scratch the name from the roll

 

Everywhere you found me

A burred up blade

Came creeping down your neck

Lean in closer, I’m strapped in to ya

Every sinking step

 

Everywhere you found me

Padding through these halls

You peered inside my mouth

Begged to find a parasite breeding

Turn me inside out

Turn me inside out
