The Ox's Lament

I haven't said a word of truth
in I don't know how long
What thread is use to seal the lips
to quell lamentia's song?

I haven't seen a different view
since glory was a boy
Will acetone clean retina
for the brush of Higg's void?

The ox isn't lost
it's just looking at birds
the dirt turns to dust
but the birds still return
all sparkled with rust
revolution still burns
the ox isn't lost
it's just flying with birds

I've never touch the skin of god
I've never built a ghost

What fossils form the will of man?
What follies forged this vacant land?
What prize received the tasseled beast?
What well to tap for our release?
