lyrics

I’d wait for a hurricane, earth quake, and acid rain to rid of this place but the flood never came. Rid of their insults and wipe their complaints start at the bottom the way an animal’s trained. If it’s simple their after there’s little to gain and just like their fathers they’re not easily tamed. They’re happy being backward, happier as bastards, their minds seem to function in old fashioned ways. Pack their jackets until the pockets are ripped with objects they’ve stolen, all useless shit that’s stored in their houses where plaster is stripped. Garbage from the garden re-packaged as gifts. A cycle of burdens a legacy failed. Children in circles chasing their tails and helping themselves to whatever they crave. A token, a voucher, a servant, a slave. The caliber of insults is brilliant despite how quick they admit that they can’t read or write.
Complete a sentence or recite a line so a dialect’s formed and handed down by a whole generation with old situations that’s tested their patience on a number of occasions. Nothing can change them it’s pointless to try I just stare in amazement as they spit in my eye.
