Dry Cleaning – Stumpwork Lyrics
Stumpwork Lyrics By Dry Cleaning
Come here, you little party hat
Let me squeeze you
And do your hair
Don’t go over there
I thought I saw a young couple clinging to a round baby
But it was a bundle of trash and food
Trash and food
A ceremonial crawl-through
Designed to keep toads off the roads
You know you’ve been written down in the big book
And on their bin it said “189 MOTHER”
You’re just jealous of the star
I feel your approach
All the hairs on my arm raise up
Because you are wearing a fleece
That has become electrified
Woah, just killed a giant wolf!
Why are you revving?
Are you enjoying yourself?
By doing nothing and staring at the wall?
What I really love is to not use something to its full capacity
Not full power
Half its potential
I am not in charge of what I do
The only thing I could think to ask was
“Do you like stumpwork?”
