Corrode With Lust And Liniment

It’s bleak and barren and hard to love
This stony ground, this harsh repose
Only one who’s gone before
Can really know, the death of it

Bones protrude and sunken eyes
Tell the tale of woe and dread
The air blows brown and sulfurous
No smiles, no dance, no recompense

Why the distant beating drums
Why the glaring sunlit hills
I alone am left to know
All the suffrage of the times

Blister bleed, infect my mind
Punish me with lacking love
Bluster forth with bold intent
Corrode with lust and liniment
