Cannot feel the bursting river
Nor is there a thirst in my mouth
I look forward to nothing at all

All my senses just junked and shut out

He’s the son of a concrete mixer
She’s a sort of ghost in the house
There’s a body, inside no liver

All the fluids just leaking out

Want to feel the bursting river
And the presence of food in my mouth
Can’t look forward to nothing at all

All my senses just locked and shut out

She’s a daughter of census takers
He’s a sort of a tenement house
There’s a spirit without a maker

On a mission and speaking out
