exit wound

        we evolved to eat this planet
        green stuff growing everywhere
        monsters prowl around in the dark
        and we all depend on its atmosphere ...

          oxygen helps you rust your food
          oxygen helps you rust your food
          oxygen helps you rust your food

        we swarm all over this tiny globe
        no one cleans up the awful mess
        bodies piled up all over each other
        even people you thought were blessed

        we hardly understand our world
        we tinker, we treasure and we fiddle
        killing and eating for entertainment
        we never learned to solve the riddle

          suicide scratches your itchy soul
          suicide scratches your aching soul
          suicide scratches your empty soul

          oxygen helps you rust your food
          lithium helps you digest your friends
          suicide scratches your empty soul

        (assorted screams...)

        hold everything secure

        September 95
