The Lesser Of Two Evils

This song is by Be Honest, Ruth Bryan! and appears on the album Stories (2010).

I see my hand moving
Writing the words I know it must write
Ink slowly stiffening
Hardening into black stalactites

Emerging into daylight
From the cave of my mind
And the water dripping off is not tears
Just condensation from the sides

Oh, legs I will cut you off
Eyes I will gouge you out
Digits throw you aloft
Self I will dash you down

If you get into my way
Hands, you can stay
Keep writing
No matter what you hear my tongue say

The day is done dawning
And I have made what choice I can
The light comes in harshly
Hitting the buildings at a slant

Slam the door shut
Don't let it get into my house
And I am done writing
Boxed into a corner
Marching to a self-imposed merciless count

Oh, legs I will cut you off
Eyes I will gouge you out
Digits throw you aloft
Self I will dash you down

If you get into my way
Hands, you can stay
Keep writing
No matter what you hear my tongue say

Oh my tongue says "Stop,
This is not what I want"
My tongue says "Please stop, stop"
Oh my tongue says "Stop,
This is not what I want"

But when my tongue says "Stop,"
Keep on
Keep on

Or legs I will cut you off
Eyes I will gouge you out
Digits throw you aloft
Self I will dash you down

If you get into my way
Hands, you can stay
Keep writing
No matter what you hear
No matter what you hear

Oh, legs I will cut you off
Eyes I will gouge you out
Oh, Digits throw you aloft
My self I will dash you down

If you get into my way
Hands, you can stay
Keep writing
No matter what you hear my tongue say

You must keep writing
No matter what you hear my tongue say
