A House With No Walls (lyrics)

In a house with no walls
there's no escape
from the eyes of the powers
locked on like a vulture

In a house with no walls
there's no escape
from the deafening mating song
of the dominant culture

In a house with no walls
there's so much noise
that thought is elusive
perhaps as intended

In a house with no walls
you can't be you
without the threat
of someone offended

In a house with no walls
there's no disguise
of the unpleasantly
necessary unclean

In a house with no walls
you'd better hope
that the powers will let you
be naturally obscene

In a house with no walls
your chosen craft
is only permitted
through luck of compliance

In a house with no walls
I am prepared
to stand with my craft
in utter defiance

In a house with no walls
how long can I stand
How long can I stand
how long
can I stand
