lyrics

it's like its memory lives in my teeth
in the bone it quietly lies there
and a heart breathed beneath
beats black upon the air

resolution can live like a bomb
when its ready and looking for her
with a skull-face bulb switched on
you can find it on every corner

a mouth hangs dumb
a glance steals sweet
a hand gestures wanting
would she like to meet me?
the dignified monkey
would he like to meet me?
the dignified monkey

we can watch the way it goes by
and tell by the way that it leans
against the lightening sky
like a gigantic guillotine

against every mornings lament
and with seemingly effortless ease
i find finally a fancied end
to the most regrettable means

and a mouth hangs dumb
and a glance steals sweet
and a hand gestures wanting
would she like to meet me?
the dignified monkey
would he like to meet me?
the dignified monkey
