the cage

 

how should I wear my teeth?

and I color my cheeks?

where should I promise these?

oh the organs of my rib cage

 

gotta give it all up to you, man 

gotta give it all up to you, man

gotta give it all up to you, man

oh this is all for you, man

 

see I came out of your body

I was attached to your spine

I was a piece of your rib cage 

I made the apple for your 

wandering eye 

 

so this is all for you 

 

I am a fraction of

I am subtracted from

I am you, your 

your derivation 

 

I am the absence of

I am the great big hole

I am the sin dark dove

I am the dust-wrought 

second one

 

so it’s all for you

oh I’m all for you

 

he said:

 

“welcome to the garden

oh, this is where you’ll pass your time

you are here a variation

you are here a derivation

so you make the most out of being

second in line

 

you are derivative, you are

derivative, you are

derivative 

 

you are derivative”
