THE IMAGE IS MULTIPLE: YELLOW FLOWERS HANGING UPSIDE DOWN, AN ASPARAGUS LIMB REACHING HIGHER AND HIGHER EVERY DAY, ROSEMARY TURNING TO MUSH.

lyrics

HERB DRINKS PETROL

a crackle of heat
swung round off your feet
a faggot of tansy
hung with bright head aflame

borne in a sack
dried on a rack
a fascine of rape
hung with bright head aflame

only succoured by moonbeams
so starving most of the time

that herb drinks petrol and grows
and grows and grows and grows
and grows and grows and grows

(how much longer
how much more
what for?)

(how much more?
how much more?)

one swift knock and she crumbles
one harsh word and she cries
she cry, cries

one harsh word and she crumbles
one pointed look and she cries
she cries

only fucked on occasion
so listless, bereft and resigned

that herb drinks petrol and dies

(how much longer?
how much more?
what for?)

(how much more?
how much more?)

the kind of face
you have to fight to love
the kind of body
you have to give up

10 gardens
a husband
the river

10 gardens
a husband
the river

10 gardens
a husband
the river
