lyrics

Look how you failed in the summer of love.
Take down the poolside you drew to stay cool.
Women are infinite so are my needs.
Death is not peace my friend
death is not peace.

So give thanks to the instincts
that have kept you assured
that something lies waiting
behind those closed doors.
Because the doors they are closing
and you are lying on the floor.
The floor made of tile that
will not support
all your hope born of body
and your faith ill conceived
your triumphs your trinity
your tradition your creed.
Take off your training bra
and what do you see?
A lifetime of labor and no peace.

Death is not peace my friend
Death is not peace.

So give thanks
to your dogmatic tendencies clean.
Give thanks to your
humble-minded innocence scene.
Give thanks to the
mother and the father
who have trained.
I think I see a tunnel
I think I hear a train.
Death is not peace my friend
Death is not peace.
Take off those training wheels
what do you see?
I see a life, I see labor
I see no peace.
