Clump 03:50
You took a pinch of my lily-white skin Then took a clump of my my hair Now I don't know where you and I begin But I'll surely wait for you there Wait for you there There is a place for forever and cold Where love disappears in the night I followed your scent 'til hate took a hold Our spark just a trick of the light, trick of the light I stole you away with a sleight of my hand You fell where the earth turns to ice Your bones conform to the pitch of the land No more will we need to think twice Need to think twice

Hello baby you got a clue I'm so wet from pissing in the wind Dry as a bone in the middle though You better bet on me this time Pissing in the wind it's all the rage I'm gonna live gonna live forever I'm so sick from pissing in the wind Relax relax you got no reason For thinking you're the only one alone here Pissing in the wind it's all the rage Got a little pot of gold Little pot of gold Well it's fine to think I'm no one I'm so ripe from pissing in the wind Shock on shock on shock on my skin I'm not saying it's the only way to be though Pissing in the wind it's all the rage Got a little pot of gold Little pot of gold Little pot of gold

She's the butcher of common sense Cut you a big fat slice Wrap it up in paper and string Why don't you come and get you some? Reel it in roll it out She's the butcher of cake and love Cut off your body slack Go feed it to the bears Why don't you come and get you some Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Roll it out Nananananananananana She's the butcher of pest and plague She's the butcher of all held dear Cut you off in your prime Why don't you come and get you some? Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Roll it out Nananananananananana Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Nananananananananana Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out Reel it in, roll it out

Carry the world under your arm Don't spill the sea Take me home Wear the brown coat don't get burnt by the sun Handle it carefully Carry the world under your breath Don't let me hear you Give me new eyes let me see past the sun Give me new eyes let me see past the sun I know a daddy who drives to the edge

Open your eyes Say something crazy Make what you say mean everything Open your eyes Make what you say be everything, be everything Heaven is a place in your heart Even though this world may fall apart One thing I know is Heaven is a place in your heart A place in your heart

Asleep on a bed of nails How come I don't go through?

Runs away from herself with the city behind her Little does she know she's hind shin and quarter She'll be a mother she was a daughter But here and now she's just a lamb to the slaughter Wipe the pain from you eyes In one motion Taste the metallic making it hard Shake the egg for me darling

about

The Butcher of Common Sense - a book. a vinyl, a cd, a show, an exhibition. A remarkable and visceral journey through half worlds and half truths - this is a set of songs that kick, caress and bite. Conceived in a vast DDR radio studio and developed under self imposed limitations and rules of spontaneity, it is a daring, raw, fragile and bold expression that blends experimentation, art, noise, melody, kosmische attitude and twisted light and shade, producing aural nightmares (Isotope) otherworldliness (Clump, U-bahn, Spill The Sea) and at times even radio friendly (Butcher of Common Sense)
