Mutant Sentimental

lyrics

my heart’s in my hand
in sifted remains of another man
and my face is different every day
and i can’t say if i’d want that it would stay

all my time!
in narrow recess of my mind
falling backwards like the spring
in novocaine-on-memory
and i’m mutant sentimental
and my heart seems ornamental
do i wear it on my sleeve?
it’s not a difference i can see


my hand’s on my heart
tracing reverse, fading into the start
wrapped around and choking all our words
and the thought––that it could all be so much worse!

and my time
in rotting recess of my mind
in the filthy city spring
high on the fumes of memory
and i’m mutant sentimental
and my heart seems ornamental
but i still wear it on my sleeve
it’s not a difference i can see


"send the money for a rainy day
for the sake of future days
you’d better have nothing for me
you hide behind a borrowed chase…"

hey? hey? ah!...
