14 Outro (Hobo Reprise)
Structurally uncertain, transparent, transgressive
i've stumbled into something and i don't know what it is.
All I-beams, bolts and plaster, corners painted in p___.
Mistakes are the brakes that i'm cutting on me.
Fast down the hill, impossibly free.
Faster and faster, i'm burning the gears.
My tears are streaming back into my ears.
My enemies i knew too well, they bickered amongst themselves.
I have a rule, that i love to break.
It ends in tears, cursing and shakes.
I'm a clown and i'm choking on blood, teeth and toungue.
f___ the spectators, f___ the "he was so young"
f___ forced sympathy through lifeless glass eyes,
Povichian voyeurs drinking my cries.
f___ faced trilobites waiting to die.
I can't stand the humor, and i can't stand the lies. Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
