Backlit photo silhouette
Now I can't see who did it
Ember-tipped cigarette
Bootclick like a castenet
And they haven't found him yet...

In the corners of the screens
In the darkest of scenes
In the negative of every photograph you've ever seen
He's the one I mean

The pocks on his face
Match the pox on your house
And the pax in his eye at the pacts that you sign
And he's packing his knife in ice

I'd like to give you a golden shower
To wash off the filth you've accumulated
To get rid of the red film I see
Every time I see you
And maybe change my "hate" to "hated"

You know you're welcome to apologize
But you sink before you float in my eyes
My hate's a yellow roaring raging river
Take a bath in it

Dirt slides underneath your nails
Clicking softly on the rails
Wild-eyed prayers to me begin
Thumb my nose and throw you in.
