lyrics

Take this little egg. Break it.
Make me tired.
Spread the broken shell around the bridge between us.

I can never rest. Not while there's unspoken broken shell between us.

Am I missing the point? Will you tell me, using words?
Not your fist. I'm scared of coming into contact.
I don't think you're thinking.

I must stay alert of your flailing arms.
I'm failing to remain inert.

I take your expression as an invitation to abuse your position.
By rights you should shoot me. I've left all my dignity under the table.

This suspense must surely be worse than the shot.
I'll be damned if I bleed, and condemned if I drop to the ground while you're hunting.
All wound up to wound me.
Don't I deserve it?
Surely I've earned it?
But am I worth it? Am I worth it? Am I worth it?

I must stay alert of your flailing arms.
I'm failing to remain inert.
I can never rest. Not while there's unspoken broken shell between us.

April Fish Wellington, New Zealand

Stories are variations of truths. Stories are made up.
Stories are honest lies.

This is art.
Art is in the eye of the beholder.

∴ April Fish are artistic liars. The cheeky blighters.
