Ballad of the Pale Kidz

lyrics

we are toxic children
sailing a coke bottle raft
on a sea of sewage
we're island hopping
from one trash heap to the next
and your carelessness
is our heritage and inheritance
with blood of blackened green
we are sustained by your remains

speaking in cockroach clicks
and seagull squeals
our bare hides tanned
the colour of caramel apples
teeth filed to cut through tin
cans bloated with botulin
our cast iron stomachs
will digest anything

the new hunter gatherers
post apocalyptic scavengers
so savage and beautiful
but we won't play noble for you
like a raccoon caught
in the beam of your flashlight
under your back deck at 4 in the morning
craven and shameless
filthy and shivering

we are toxic children.
