A mistake was made the day the Earth collapsed
The captain of the science vessel couldn't have predicted that
There were two men in the brain -- one was lovely the other insane --
they pushed and pulled on the valley deck

And then bombs explode with a stubbornness that has no other match
A miracle to be exact; sentimental for the facts
No other weapon could be worse than a goodbye speech so well rehearsed

The inkling of a shape against the frame of the doorway
I find myself striped and burdened by the grasp of a fear I can't control
And the boundaries are all run thin by their own destruction
I will pull down on the cord bring the sky to the floor
spend money on things I no longer can afford
When the world dies we'll measure up and find that everything breaks even
The dollar bill you once applied to fund the fight where people died
there is some proof that you are living in a looping circle of a lie

When the body heat slowly leaves the seat where the mandible bit the ankle meat
the clandestine and the mercury rise to join the ranks of the old elite
No promise holds its end up no notion lacks a seed
We have eyes We have mouths We can feed
