Sitting in the boardroom
Listening to the suits
They can make straight lines
Except for the line
Dressed in my best greasy skin
I'm the only part of summer here
In the air-conditioned building
I wonder
Though my underwear
There's men wearing the blood
There's white wearing the blood of the brown
And we bleed to renew life
I got my vertebrae all stacked up
I but I still feel myself sliding
So I excuse myself and leave the room
But it's not a minute too soon
I go and find the only other woman on the floor
I ask her if she's got a tampon I could use
Oh honey, what a hassle for you
You know I do
It ain't no hassle, no, it ain't no mess
That I possess
They got the instruments of death
I can make breath
The I'm-so-bored room
I didn't really have much to say
So I just left a big brown bloodstain
