Lyrics

What's to see but the secret?
Crystal balls sittin' in your sockets
What's to feel but the presence?
Shakti fields surge in your circuits

Steep it, cook it
Love is an oven
A couple ones
and I could bake you eleven
Shake it, cut it
open a vessel
a couple wounds
could give you a vinyard

What's another bruise in the belly,
Can't you take a punch like a lover,
don't you wanna dance in the gutter,
For the flower of a zero?

Daddy likes polishing a pistol
Mother digs fingerin' her bible
Sister's stuck under an uncle
I got a brother down
bingin' in the basement

Shakin' shadows outta the mortals
duke it out until the Devil is dizzy
breakin' knuckles
fuckin' climbin' a spiral
diggin' jewels outta the jungle

What's another bruise in the belly
can't you take a punch like a lover
don't you wanna bleed like a mother
for the flower of a zero?
What's another spike in a muscle
to a couple kids in a riddle
fallin' outta hell like the petals
from the flower of a zero?

Flower, Zero

Baby why do we do this?
We've already been through this
we're all Jesus and Judas
especially the Buddhists
But I keep feedin' the fantasy
God I'd love a lobotomy
before I murder the Mystery
I need you to lift me
Above
all the shit I've learned
show me the way
without a word
Forget about halos
Forget about heroes
Flower, zero

What's another bruise in the belly
can't you take a punch like a lover
don't you wanna bleed like a mother
for the flower of a zero?
What's another spike in a muscle
to a couple twins in a riddle
there's nobody here but the petals
from a flower of a zero

Flower, zero
