The National Throat

from by Cut Teeth

/

lyrics

put your ear to the ground
the city is a symphony
put your ear in the clouds
the livid ones are listening

as the factory siren sang the songs of future tense
Arseny bowed the sighs of the working dissident
and the people played the war cannons like flutes
imperfect present could stand to make his machine a muse

we must clear the national throat
night years on this rational road
have wound away from our control
we must clear the national throat

bound by a sound
get down get down
bound by a claim
stake down stake down

as the factory siren blared the bullets stopped and listened
Arseny strummed the strings of a thousand violins
and the people played the war cannons like flutes
imperfect present could stand to make his machine a muse
