Track Name: ain't no evil
(uroboros intro)

(ain't no evil ever been bound by evil)

ain't no, ain't no evil
ever been bound by evil
ain't no, ain't no evil
ever been bound by evil
ain't no, ain't no evil
ever been bound by evil

ain't no, ain't no flag
flying ever been flown worth flying
ain't no, ain't no flag
flying ever been flown worth dying
ain't no, ain't no evil ever been bound. . . .

(am I easily misled?)

hooker hounds
coochie choo, what to do?
thump corduroy bump
toil!

hooters round
what to do? blend of hues
fingernail leave a trail
boil!

horns are cleft
nothing's left, make-shift bereft
cock-a-doodle do, no don't
loyal!

(terrible frown)

no! no! no! no! no!
limping towards the abyss
knowing what, what can kill death
though my thoughts are remiss
ignoring what can kill death
serenades of this true loss of bliss
contemplating what issues from breath
a waning breath, raise your hairs with a kiss
a waning kiss,
with dread I'm pulling down
your moss covered gown
to invert the terrible frown

& did I know it all would end
by the death of whose life mine depends?
praise be ye, praise on high
praise chopped up fine with old chicken thighs!
mercy will be shown upon these fists
by the great redeemer in my midsts
a waning kiss, count the hairs on your head
with waiting breath
& with dread I'm pulling down
your moss covered gown
to invert the terrible frown
