Dedicated to Albert Einstein


i'm playing dolls
with this very very pretty pretty bomb
i dress it up
sugarcoated, lacquered like a stage mom
tuck it in
kiss it's cheek
fuck the wick
it's such a deep hard on
smash that piggy bank
as a way to pay
and thank you
for that pretty pretty bomb


it will be cold in new york city this year
the window's closed, but the first split warms up in here
the energy watching me
he can see i'm struggling
keeps on
trade the future for the now
thanks to the pretty pretty bomb

as if a silver bullet
you come in like you know it
like you got it
like you'll take it
like you want it
like you own it.
pretending to have
all this muscle and bread
like a zombie cowboy lassoing the dead
i feel heavy and wet
underrated, undersexed
always move the simple question into the complex
neglected but fortified
hard in love but mind on science
tunnel vision questions why
acts of faith, child on fire
