​Rose Petal Knot

This song is by Eyeless In Gaza and appears on the album Caught in Flux (1981) and on the compilation album Voice: The Best of Eyeless in Gaza (Recollections 1980-1986) (1993).

Tangible... notions of certain direction
Nestle in a rose petal of affection...
Hard, in inflexible stiff lines of reason...
All bound, shrewd with self-defence...
Shot through with poison... noxious resentments,
Rife with maleviolence... smashing the possible,
Trampling on innocence... to strangle, scratch,
Suffocate, strain; disconnect... poignant;
To anticipate bursting of strained floodgates...
