lyrics

sever the sun from the monotony of gravity
just an empty cavity in a dark and endless black
sever the moon from the melody and the tune
of a million whiny poets crying for what they'll never have

maybe some day we'll love one another
without buying diamond rings dug up by black slaves
in the middle of a civil war
maybe some day we'll fuck one another
without hoping that it ends so we can just go to bed
and pray that we'll never wake up

sever the child from the umbilical chord for a while
jesus mom, you've got that kid on the nipple like pappa binges on the bottle
sever yourself from the things that you can't do without
and watch yourself survive exactly as you once did

maybe some day we'll love one another
without buying diamond rings dug up by black slaves
in the middle of a civil war
maybe some day we'll fuck one another
without hoping that it ends so we can just go to bed
and pray that we'll never wake up
