to cover up stench

image

There’s a beautiful smell in the air tonight
Urine
And in the distance the sound of a bar fight
Pour out the cupboards
Fill up the tables
And think of all those who starve
Dust the empty rooms
Dust the empty rooms
And think of all those who have no room to dust
There’s a beautiful smell in the air tonight
So forget about the world around us
Yes, lock up in the castle of our house
We say, “This waiter is so slow
don’t they know I have places to go?”
Rush, rush, and forget the starving
Drink in the beauty
Reject the rest
Life is always sweet when you look at what you want
Damn the rest
Yes, there’s a beautiful smell
But we bought it
Real life often stinks
At least for some
But we mask it
We look past it
And soak in only beauty
