lyrics

I'm not a trapper
you're not a rabbit
so don't look at me like that.
I want your old face back.

I had four days of silence
three days of starving
two days of blood-knuckle boxing and hitting the wall
and one day to just lose it all.

Uncivilize yourselves
jump from the highest cliff
down to the bottom shelf
shed off your First World skin
sleep in a cave again

For tweny-four hours
we stayed on our backs
we were the happiest rabbits
in the happiest cage.
With soap in my eyes
I catalogued you like a crime scene - here a shoulder, there a breast
it might've been a baptism if I weren't pawing at you.
It's too late you untaste the fruit.

Uncivilize yourselves
jump from the highest cliff
down to the bottom shelf
shed off your First World skin
sleep in a cave again
start a fire again
'til we're monkeys picking things off monkeys again
