THE ACADEMY OF SUNThe Parts That Need Replacing
The Quiet Earth (tba)

° ° °
The medicine of death is best swallowed with laughter
Scuppered convictions dim the stage lights

I’ve used up angels like batteries.
And human nature hates you

Belief sustains the object of belief
Eat the parts that need replacing
Sour release and sweet relief.
Eat the parts that need replacing.

Only biology cares to survive.
A killer, consciousness contrives.

The body alone can process grief.
Eat the parts that need replacing.

I cut your hair and missed a bit
And now your head drains on the floor.
The best special effects are those you don’t see

Memory resides inside the body
So let me help you forget.
