Protomartyr – Here Is The Thing Lyrics

Dread 2017 18
Air horn age
Age of horn blowing
Mental corkscrew
Starwipe to gloom
Pulling cork, snoring out all day
Woke up in the stadium district 

Here is the thing, here is the thing

Hey, well now later the hour
Now you know innovative thievery in parking structures
Landing least of the horrors
Least of the horrors
At least they are well lit, well

Here is the thing, here is the thing

Old billionaire dead, buried in his hair shirt
New face loves surveillance, comic sans, parroting an ape

Here is the thing, here is the thing

From foot to gut – come on stone – quicken stone- pass through- pass without pain- take everything- reach rock roll- reach rock roll- pass through silent- put shiny bezoars fresh in the pot- for sales- from an old goat- and the gut

Here is the thing, here is the thing
And it will be with you for the rest of your life

It lives in your home 
Under roof and floor, every room
In the ground 
In the day
In the grind of the day
It grows fat off your fear
And it will be with you for the rest of your life

Here is the thing, there is the thing

It makes you choose between necessity and health 
Anything can do what you do
It drops like dung both poverty and wealth
Giggling and gagging
False test 
Time to pull the profits from their chest 

Here is the thing, here is the thing 

(unintelligible ranting)
