"The Aggression (Of Beauty And Grace)"
Music by Capers Simmons (ASCAP)
Lyrics by Cary Hampton Upchurch
© 2012

Standing naked in the shower
You wash the grime of merry hours from your hair
Cuba's nice, this time of year
Perhaps it is time for traitor tears to fall right here

Soaked through skin, teeth and bone
You see the hollow honey comb deep in your veins
It's been raining seven days
Now untangle your own ways inside your brain

Flowing tears beneath your eyes
Are your own to your surprise and to your joy
How do you find butterflies
When you're trapped inside your own disguise

It's like a spider web of lies
It's like a spider web of lies

You sneeze and cough quite a little
Finding hard to keep the middle in its place
It's the smiles you say again
Jabbing up inside your head inside your space

Screaming naked in the shower
You hear the clock upon the hour stealing time away
You hope that God is watching closely
Maybe he'll be melancholy and send you far away

There are strands around your wrists
Play the game at your own risk; break all ties
When you're at the masquerade
Discard your mask along the way; don't hide your eyes
