Limpet Mine
(words W.Sony)
she comes wrapped like a mummy /with a tear in her heart - she can dance like a bushlire I blow you apart - she says witch doctor I wrong diagnoses - is it love - that makes your fingers go around in a rubber glove - there is pain in the air - your wasted and spent- your minds fucked up your head is all bent - like a pressure gauge - somebody pushed a button and she flew into a rage - she's mine I she's a limpet mine - she's stuck to the seat-
like chewing gum - children rocking to the beat - in a bus shelter - heaven help -her count the little feet - chewing out the rhythm on the cold concrete - it's a crime to die to be poor or to see more than another a log or a tree in your eye remove the plank from your own then your brother will forgive and throw another stone give it back it's a bomb it‘s a hand grenade they found her at a party in the lemonade - she peaks like a cap and kicks like a mule somebody's got to tell her that she ought to be at school /she‘s mine/ she's a limpet mine/
she blew up in my face throwing bits of lurniture all over the place I she says go back to base 'and i'll guarantee -they've made another model for humanity /with bits ot wood and plastic glue /he‘s a super human baby he‘ll ‘break you in two I he‘s got a wrist watch you understand/ a time bomb; hidden in his prostate gland - he's muscle bound with hair on his face winning hands down in the arms race - he's agent orange insecticide stripping down tree’s - no place to hide- he said "case the joint before we leave ~.._take what you can reprieve" - give him back he's a bomb be‘s a hand1~grenade»/ they found him at the party in the lemonade - He's mine I 'He's a lirnpet mine /_yellow at heart - founded a nation that lived apart /with it’s head in the sand I ostracised I praying to a god that di,dn‘t' sympathfise /he can shit like a brick and brake like a bike /
in a camouflage suit_he’s out of sight I like "Fat Boy 0ne" from Enola Gaye/ he's right on target and here to stay /you can squeeze him through your brief case - push him through your shirt I leave him on a train til he's ready to burst He's a mine /we’re mines -we‘re limpet mines /yellow at heart -iliving' in a country that‘s blowing apart
