lyrics

the crap inside the snack machine
was substanceless and had no worth
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
the pretzels stale the cola flat the water
warm and bottled up
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
chocolate melted to the rings
yet flaky, oxidized and pale
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
and yet we shook with all our strength
so something might reveal itself
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
the springs inside give little gasps
they have no time to scream at all
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
finger smudges on the glass and
corners splayed with tiny cracks
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
if nothing moves then nothings there
the crumpled bags just painted on
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
just give up something something please
it could be really anything


Smile
thats a really weird smile
mouth is filled up with tiles
thats a really weird smile
mouth is filled up with


sticky crumbs now drop from nails into the
keyboard’s leveled shelves
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
they slow down work they slow down pace
they multiply within the space
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
soda held in shaky hand to calm the nerves
with extra fizz
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
the cap is gone it is no more it rolled across
the concrete floor
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
might as well get back to task to cleaning
out these tiny cracks
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
fingernails they’re cut too short and pens
to blunt to pry within
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
focus focus on the keys and on the space
that lies beneath
(I wouldn't Say that, I wouldn’t say that)
how else will the dirt come out that makes the wretching shrieking scream (shout)
