  • The tycho, don't you know nothing?
    The doors on the oven
    Wide enough to make us all kin
    Boy scout
    Let it all gush out
    Shopping your brains out now at the bargain bins

    So many to germs to avoid
    Thinking about it just nurtures them
    Baby, return to your toys, a little mental hideaway

    You're painting a hole
    And you crawl up inside it
    You're painting a hole
    On everyone in your way
    You're painting a hole
    To magical violence
    You're painting a hole
    But it keeps fading away

    Morning dove
    One thing I'm sure of
    Kisses ain't near enough
    To reign the vultures in
    Every good girl and boy
    Prized away from the firmament
    Elegant hands unemployed or on a permanent holiday

    You're painting a hole
    And you crawl up inside it
    You're painting a hole
    On everyone in your way
    You're painting a hole
    To magical violence
    You're painting a hole
    But it keeps fading away Writer/s: James Russell Mercer
