Lyrics

Hammering a Spike Through a Marble Stone

Written By: James Cutrera

Hatched from an egg, bite on a nipple swallowing milk
The very last drop makes his belly full
Walking on shells, with his toes pointed down, learning gravity’s pull
in a sandbox full of toys with symphonic noise from a playground choir
He's driving around in his solar powered plastic automobile
Leaning back with one hand on the steering wheel
“The neighbor’s daughter, she's blonde w/ blue eyes and just my type
I haven’t learned how to whistle, but give me seventeen years, and I just might.”

A liter of a natural vitamin, dirty up for a future husband with tainted meat who got a kitten at a second-hand store
Add or subtract four, soon you’ll be a mathematician

Suck on a lemon, feast on acidic pulp without straws
while perfecting a card game at the table with the wife’s in-laws
Starving a fever, feeding a cold are home remedies
ice cubes in the soup, a warm glass of tea and forty winks
Neither one wants to know, but the question couldn’t resist
Written on foggy mirrors with index fingers, 'Bliss is ignorance'

A liter of a natural vitamin, dirty up for a future husband with tainted meat who got a kitten at a second-hand store
Add or subtract four, soon you’ll be a mathematician

The future doesn’t tally up
andThe monster rears its head when you get to the top, at the apex of a fantasy
So don’t fix what’s not broken and don’t tear the perfect packaging
