lyrics

in the summer of eighty-five
I boil myself alive
I belong to no one

to the bed of a burning witch
I manacle my wrists
I belong to no one, no one

the Jellyman said:
am I dead?
Or am I rising?

it is said,
that I was spying
on the fabulous goods of the rich
from the narrow confines of a ditch

In the winter of ninety-eight
I shared the city's fate
I belong to no one

there's a devil in the devil-pot
there's a demon in the demon-slot
I belong to no one, no one

*

it is said,
that I was spying
on the bones of the young and the old
from the narrow confines of a hole

under a living tree
I shot futurity
I put the want before the need

under a living tree
the dark is love to me
I cut the kernel from the seed

*

it is said
that I was spying
on the rise and the fall of a lash
from the narrow confines of a gash
