From the album Consider Your Cage

Lyrics

There is a Small Sound

I smashed my car to mix my week up
It didn't work good enough
Now I think of the height of these bridges
And the temperature down south
It's an anthem for a world gone quadrilateral
When I step through the pearly gates
It's a hymn for the first one,
the first one that I am gonna punch out

Ado looks over her shoulder

The second verse is where the flaws in our hero
Make for tension and rough starts
So why not skip to the good part?

A little flesh for the magistrate
A little skin for the crown
Friends and lovers
Afraid of one another
When the light blinks out
(There's only a small sound)

Smashed my car and now I'm walking
Smashing is clearly on my mind
The dilettantes who never thought better
They strut through the line and then glide through the shredder
On their faces, some surprise

Wouldn’t be smart to catch wise

Level praise at the common affliction
Man, we are really on a roll
Lay your hands on the floor
Or your face on the door
You can feel the vibration
Smell what’s in store
And you don’t have enough to pay the toll

A little flesh for the magistrate
A little skin for the crown
Friends and lovers
Afraid of one another
When the light blinks out
There is only a small sound

There is a small sound
Whither the fantasy?
We are burning it to the ground.
