Juggernaut

lyrics

What did you wake me for
close up the drapes before
somebody sees that we live in bed

Send dead flesh to market
There's blood on the carpet
No one can know that we sleep in our mess

Your great post-modern juggernaut, love
protects its old accomplices
It broke all your divining rods, love
and shattered all your compasses
Teach me the art of murder, my love
until my dreams are dead to me
Then take it even further, my love
and help me burn my masterpiece

I'm not your walking stick
Gravity makes me sick
Clean out my stomach and close my eyes

I'm desperate to lose the weight
Go on and amputate
Maybe I'll heal up or maybe I'll die
either way

Your great post-modern juggernaut, love
protects its old accomplices
It broke all your divining rods, love
and shattered all your compasses
Teach me the art of murder, my love
until my dreams are dead to me
Then take it even further, my love
and help me burn my masterpiece
