Kind of Fascination
by Shriekback



Always striving with the elbows, always moving from the knees
Building up and demolition, both burn up some energy
Take it in and shit it out, six foot down and still descending
Grab a shovel - celebrate - only got what we don't need

In the wake of predecessors, all inherited responses
Are all in the movie now getting colder all the time
Starting to regard the prison with a kind of fascination
Facing up to history: facing what we do not need

We can get what - we don't need
We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we can't eat
We can leave what - we can't eat

Doing damage to ourselves, belated action of the past
A perversion of tradition and we carry on the line
There are dead things lying round, they offend but stay unburied
We are cinema for now, only cinema for now

We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we can't eat
We can leave what - we can't eat

Coming out the other end, a sentimental point of view
We can contemplate each other but the other is no fool
We are in this anyway, breathing in what you breathe out
Couldn't think of nothing better, only got what we don't need
Only got what we don't need

Doing damage to ourselves, belated action of the past
A perversion of tradition and we carry on the line
There are dead things lying round, they offend but stay unburied
We are cinema for now, only cinema for now
Only cinema for now

We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we don't eat
We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we don't eat
We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we don't eat
We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we don't eat

We can get what - we don't need // We can leave what
We can leave what - we don't eat // - we can't eat
We can get what - we don't need // We can leave what
We can leave what - we don't eat // - we can't eat

We can get what - we don't need
We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we can't eat
We can leave what - we can't eat
We can get what - we don't need
We can get what - we don't need
We can leave what - we can't eat
We can leave what - we can't eat
We can get what - we don't need
