BLOWTORCH SNOWJOB (instrumental)


When is a man just a mouse?
When he hides in the house and ignores what is happening
Covers his eyes to the lies that he tells
So he won’t have to know
Hiding away from the fray In a hole in the wall
In a world become small. Nothing to say
Cause the cat got his tongue and then he lost his balls
What if I said that he might not be dead in the head
But instead he is opening
Into his eyes and his ears it appears that he hears
And it’s always been happening
How can you halt the assault of ideas from the box
When Pandora destroyed the lock?
I’ll bet you probably want to stay away
From all the things you found
Cos it’s bound to drag you down
It takes you further from home
You try to crush your doubts but there’s so damn many now
What will it take to erase the mistakes from the day
When the Fox threw it all away


Look: The unseen escape
Break from the known, take what you own
Cause, or is it some effect straight for your neck
straight for the wreck that is luring you near
Isolate and take what you get
I don’t want to know, say it’s not so
Out on my own, I’m pleading uncertainty
It’s a long way home, a long way home again
A long way alone
Ice, nice, it gets you so cold, but you don’t even know
What feelings you’ve folded in again
Night fight — I know what I know: That it’s not easy
Bring me stones and all I can eat from these bones
Is this fortress all my own?
I see, branches around, they surround me, stairs going down
I hear breaking — what is that sound?
It’s confusing and, boy, is it loud
Down where there is light, sound, spectrum of night
When we fell to the ground
In the madness, something came out
And it’s moving, dissolving the doubt
These words, these beautiful vowels
Storming around from the silence where everything’s found
Always looming, like rain from a cloud
Words, and all that’s aroused
