lyrics

the way she stands: stomach out, arms folded to hide her breasts

her belt broke - snapped and split - she pulled it off to look at it

on a rock broke the shreds of it, the leather furring and flapping there

dance away your blotted years - what led you to say those things?

fishers of men lay oars aside to talk about fishing on the shore.

a beautiful duck, ready to drop, holed up among the bushes

hidden here, in my hand, are beads - Assyrian beads.

she’s got hips - she’s got ‘em out - she’s showin’ us all what she can do

she’s tuned in to our greatest hits - speedplay’s on her small machine

metal on metal, passing a force that’s been generated some time ago

and stored for later use - the lyrical approach to lovemaking

what gets passed, hand-to-hand, but that same technological fluid?

the first movement was out and out - wetlands get watered down

no smile, no look, for the man who made all this

a drowned sun, dipped in lava, for to fuel another race

a blast material, poised and strong, holding great latent potential

redundancies worked out so they overlap beautifully
