    Blow the Man Down (Blyth Power)

    • I didn’t wash up last night because it wasn’t my turn, and no, you can’t use some of my margarine.

      Pipe the man aboard, my pleasure
      Make him feel at home
      Show him to his quarters
      Give him hairspray and a comb
      Give him tar and feathers
      To anoint his skin and bone

      You know the one that I mean he speaks in cryptics
      Loves his sorrows helps them grow
      The scars on his arms are self-inflicted
      Blood let horror painted prose
      Is it better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness

      Show him to the flag, my pleasure
      Show him to the Lord
      Bid him touch his forehead
      To the varnished wooden floor
      If he asks you questions
      Tell him this and nothing more

      Are you invested with supernatural power
      Are you the mortar or the stone
      Should we send you the bill or send you the flowers
      Keep you here or send you home
      Is it better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness

      Make your needle sharp, my pleasure
      Sharper than a thorn
      Stick it underneath my skin, my pleasure
      Ram the plunger home
      When I fall asleep
      I’ll tell you all you want to know

      Up my back runs my central nervous system
      Unconnected unrestrained
      Interlocking with vacuum pipes and cisterns
      Making pleasure out of pain
      In my mind is a scintillating scripture
      Not a word of which is true
      Illustrated with watercolour pictures
      Is it me or is it you
      That’s invested with supernatural powers
      Are you the mortar or the stone
      Should we send you the bill or send you the flowers
      Keep you here or send you home

      And is it better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness
