lyrics

Human history which is shown in blue
Transparent negatives ashamed of its nudity
In a way that its dead kings
and bishops cover up their limbs
Truth’s stone ripples the still sea
Whose stream has come to a halt

A woman takes off her boots
Before walking into the sea
To keep the salt from it
To keep the salt from it

Lap lap lap!
Lap lap lap!

Oh, a chemical formula
Of the powerful error
Of howling sharks
And silent tide lines
Which isn’t yet to be found
An unrotten apple
In an abandoned house

Human history which is shown in blue
Transparent negatives ashamed of its nudity
Dead kings and bishops cover up their limbs
Dead kings and bishops cover up their limbs

A chemical formula
Of the powerful error
Of howling sharks
And silent tide lines
Which are not yet to be found
An unrotten apple
In an abandoned house
Green shining fruits of the unreal

Oh, a chemical formula
Of the powerful error
Of howling sharks
And silent tide lines
Which isn’t yet to be found
An unrotten apple
In an abandoned house

The gunpowder of language is to be found
Between panels and wall which are covered in
Hardened foil, blue shining foil of the unreal.

Nothing’s so hidden that it’s not to be found
Nothing’s so hidden that it’s not to be found
When people close their eyes they have
A meeting with their own organs, and put
A fuse in their mouth

Blast blast blast!
Blast blast blast!

Powerful men split like mice in a spring trap
Their white skulls crumble at the same time
Their intestines burst out of their hairy bodies
Like lava volcano

It’s nature opening, the earth confessing

Lap Lap Lap!
Crash crash crash!
Blast blast blast!

A sea swallows the woman’s hips
But the silence of the tide is broken
The coastline rumbles
The coastline rumbles
The coastline rumbles
The coastline rumbles
The coastline rumbles
The coastline rumbles!

Oh, a chemical formula
Of the powerful error
Of howling sharks
And silent tide lines
Which isn’t yet to be found
An unrotten apple
In an abandoned house
Which is shown in blue
Transparent negatives ashamed of its nudity
In a way that its dead kings
and bishops cover up their limbs
Truth’s stone ripples the still sea
Whose stream has come to a halt
