RAT LAYER
(B. BRETT / BUCK GOOTER)

YOU NEED TO POUR A RAT LAYER
OVER YOUR HEART
TO KEEP THE VERMIN
FROM DIGGING IT UP
THEY TUNNEL THROUGH
THEY RIP IT APART
YOU NEED TO POUR A RAT LAYER
OVER YOUR HEART

I SEE THE THRASHING HAIR
AND THE HOLOGRAPHIC
CEREAL BOX
CRUMPLED FORM
WITH TEARS ON THE FLOOR
I HEAR THE TONE OF THE BLADE
AND KNOW THIS MOVIE
WASN'T MADE FOR TV
IT WAS MADE FOR ME
AND I ESCAPE
INTO THE SHIFTING
RAINBOW GHOST FACE
IT MAKES ME SCARED
WHEN SNAKES EAT STARS
I NEED TO POUR A RAT LAYER
OVER MY HEART

RAT LAYER

IS IT THE TONE OF THE BLADE
OR THAT OF TEETH
GNAWING THROUGH THE ROCKS?
THE HOLOGRAPHIC CEREAL BOX
KEPT AWAY
BECAUSE IT MIGHT BE WORTH
SOMETHING SOMEDAY
MIGHT BE WORTH
ITS WEIGHT IN PAIN
IT'S ALL OUTSIDE
IT'S ALL INSIDE
IT'S TIME
IT'S TIME
TO POUR A RAT LAYER
BEFORE THE HEART IS
COMPROMISED
COMPROMISED
