your face your face
your amazing grace
under fire
to the barricades
leaving accolades
in a pile of requited desire
your face your face
between ire
and sweet candidates
for songs and knowing
how awful we allow this
world to be
your face your face
on those dawn morning raids
when you give me the time
when you give me the space
to fan unseen fire
simmer catastrophe
make a song
cool the lava
rake an angry tongue
with saliva undone
you guess where I’m going
nearly always wrong
you pack my bag
like I had a star ship
you are the captain
of my murderous lisp
chin out
fuck the pundits
those gnarly keepers of
what they think they knew
I am yours you are mine
your face your face
is my dangerous mine
here’s the gold
in my hand
here’s the diamond still banned
no children were harmed in
our rainbow romance
no animals slaughtered
to get at the answer
you live like the gentle answer you are
I give the confusion
a name to the star
your face your face
your amazing grace
make it last
make it real
with rainbow potential
I love you
and then some
diabolic eventual
I love you
I love you
make some sense
of this won’t you?
