Broken Dolls

Katzenjammer Kabarett

broken doll scissors bed walls 
broken things can not restore 
the dead brought back to life 
these are the rules of your world 
buried smiles passing by 
buried dreams under the swings 
decaying deformity contented eyes 
birth recording thoughts 
shadowy figures walk by her 
teenage girl passing near buildings 
breathless swings in her yard 
nightmare of fabrication 
things that break cannot come back 
secretly dispose of the broken ones 
rewrite memory again and again 
all you are is all you're aware of 
dead doll before birth 
no birth record 
thoughts end next reality 
and overcome the barriers 

now please take my hand 
me myself the only reality 
spinning mirror balls 
and heavy beats reality 

no one cares
