mommy can we kill daddy
daddy can we die
paint our throats and paint the skies
red and grey like our dreams
the clouds can't hear the sun can't see
but they're both more sensible than we ever could hope to be
slinging knives and stones at our love

buckle up and buckle down
her knees are knocking mine
mellifluously staggering by the tides
of a sea of bloodied wives and husbands
and daughters and sons of bastards and whores
and slaves and bourgeoisie
they're all the same
we're all the same
we all die, we all die, we all die

do you want to die?
does it feel like home when your eyes are closed?

we can be alone
we can be alone
we can be alone
we can die together
we can be alone
we can be alone
we can be alone
we can die together

You get Radio Wire Empire." - Tramps Upstairs
