about

lyrics

Once upon a time
experiments sublime
made a different kind of family

drugs and radiation
Made the perfect mutations
that most would think was blasphemy.

Arturo was born with
no limbs but could swim with
the flippers that were there instead.

His sisters were joined at
the hip and it meant that
later they’d be popular in bed.

Then there was Oly
followed Arty like a collie
And served him and and foot without quibbling.


A dwarf trying to cope 
with no pigment or hope
of being more unique than her siblings 


For all their abnormalities
like all families
theres rivalry and needing to feel loved.

So much there was incest
and murder and secrets
that only seemed to lead to more of the above.


Now they're all Binewski dust
in a cup that'll just
finally be serene
on the hood of a travelling machine.

Drama is drama 
theirs included the trauma
of a cult of dismemberment

Chick would make them numb
hacked into holy stumps
becoming the same to be different.

Siamese twins
Evil cult leader with fins
The fattest baby in the world

Miss Lick thinks she’s right
helping women use their minds
by cutting off the parts that make them girls.

Oly’s consummation
was made with no flirtation
Just a boy granting his sister’s request

But it was by telekinesis
so if there's no act to resist
is it rape or just three-way incest.
