Attrition
The Jeapordy Maze


Pain

Cut off from our neighbours
On this high-status carousel
Spinning, drifting
Sent reeling in gas clouds
With nerve endings paralysed
Watching, sighing
Hoping for comfort
While searching for body
Listening, waiting

For that cry from the brain that just won't stop screaming
At us 'til we run from the cause of our pain.

Internal crises (just won't stop screaming)
Of outside reflections (just won't stop screaming)
Aching, warning.
Proving aggression by destroying the scaffold
Wincing, dying.
Directing the knife over yet virgin earth
Yearning, praying.

For that cry from the brain that just won't stop screaming
At us 'til we run from the cause of our pain.
For that cry from the brain that just won't stop screaming
At us 'til we run from the cause of our pain.
For that cry from the brain that just won't stop screaming
At us 'til we run from the cause of our pain.
