Flower Of Zero


Whatís to see
See, but the secret?
Crystal balls
Sittiní in our sockets

Whatís to feel
Feel but the presence?
Shakti fields
Surge in our circuits

Steep it, cook it
Love is an oven
A couple ones
And I can bake you eleven
Shake it, cut it
Open the vessel
A couple wounds
Could give you a vineyard

	Whatís another bruise in the belly?
	Canít you take a punch like a lover?
	Donít you wanna dance in the gutter
	For the flower of a zero?

	Whatís another spike in the muscle
	To a couple twins in the riddle?
	Falling out of hell like the petals
	From the flower of a zero

Flower,
Zero

Daddy likes polishiní his pistol
Mother digs fingeriní her bible
Sisterís stuck under an uncle
I got a brother down
binginí in the basement

Shaking shadows
Out of the mortals
You duke it out
Till the devils are dizzy
Breakiní knuckles
Climbiní a spiral
Digginí jewels
Out of a jungle

	Whatís another bruise in the belly?
	Canít you take a punch like a lover?
	Donít you wanna bleed like a mother?
	For the flower of a zero

	Whatís another spike in the muscle
	To a couple twins in the riddle?
	Falling out of hell like the petals
	From the flower of a zero

Flower
Zero

Baby
why do we do this?
Weíve already been through this
Weíre all Jesus and Judas
(especially the Buddhists)

But I keep
feeding the fantasy
God,
Iíd love a lobotomy
Before I
murder the mystery
I need you to lift me
Above
All this shit Iíve learned
Show me the way
Without a word

Flower
Zero

Better forget about halos
Better forget about heros
Itís only an enso
Címon baby,
Show me a zero

	Whatís another bruise in the belly?
	Canít you take a punch like a lover?
	Donít you wanna bleed like a mother?
	For the flower of a zero?

	Whatís another spike in the muscle?
	To a couple twins in the riddle?
	Thereís nobody here but the petals
	From a flower of a zero

Flower,
Zero
