Metaphysical
Yisrā'el burns brightly over horizontal cataclysms
And the Johannite's plunge their flesh into salt water springs
Where the Templars later cupped their hands to drink
Jerusalem is the space between tongue and teeth

And the Johannite's plunge their flesh into salt water springs
Worshippers of shrunken heads and wooden rosaries
Jerusalem is the space between tongue and teeth
The young swallow ivory, mistaking it for gold.

Worshippers of shrunken heads and wooden rosaries
Dalliances of desert bluebirds caught between your teeth
The young swallow ivory, mistaking it for gold.
The metaphysical entanglement leaves you drowning in bathtub water.

Dalliances of desert bluebirds caught between your teeth
The regions of religion shift inside the tide of mouths chewing the roundness of it
The metaphysical entanglement leaves you drowning in bathtub water.
You've sucked the rind of kingship – a woman with the ceremonial swell

The regions of religion shift inside the tide of mouths chewing the roundness of it
Where the Templars later cupped their hands to drink
You've sucked the rind of kingship – a woman with the ceremonial swell
Yisrā'el burns brightly over horizontal cataclysms.
