E
Go without
Til the need seeps in
           A
You low animal
                                  E
Collect your novel petals for the stem
And glow, glow, melt and flow
Eviscerate your fragile frame
                               A
And spill it out on the ragged floor
                                  E
A thousand different versions of yourself
           B
And if the old guard still offend
         A
They got nothing left on which you depend
So enlist every ounce
Of your bright blood
                   E
And off with their heads
Jump from the hook
                                              A
You're not obliged to swallow anything you despise
                                          E
See those unrepenting buzzards want your life
                A
And they got no right
As sure as you have eyes
            E          B      A
They got no right

E     A

E
Just put yourself in my new hooves
And see that I do what I do
            B
Because the old guard still offend
        A
We got nothing left on which we depend
So we waste every ounce
Of your bright blood
                   E
And off with their heads
Jump from the hook
And you're not obliged
To swallow anything that you despise
