    Lyrics

    Upside down and inside out ___?
    You're like a funnel-web
    Like a black fly on the ceiling
    Skinny, white haunches high in the sky
    And a black oily gash crawling backwards across the carpet to smash all
    over everything
    Wet, black fur against the sun going down
    Over the shops and the cars and the crowds in the town

    And this is the moment, this is exactly where she is born to be
    Now this is what she does and this is what she is
    And this is the moment, this is exactly where she is born to be
    This is what she does and this is what she is
    Her eyes that look at me through a rainy hair
    Two round holes where the air buckles and rushes in
    Her body, moon blue, was a jellyfish
    And I'm breathing deep and I'm there and I'm also not there
    And spurting ink over the sheets but she remains, completely unexplained
    Or maybe I'm just too tongue-tied to drink it up and swallow back the pain
    I thought slavery had been abolished
    How come it's gone and reared its ugly head again?

    And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is born to be
    And this is what she does and this is what she is
    And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is born to be
    This is what she is and this is what she does

    And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is born to be
    And this is what she does and this is what she is
    And this is the moment, this is exactly what she is born to be
    Then this is what she does and this is what she is

    And now she's jumping up with her leaping brain
    Stepping over heaps of sleeping children
    Disappearing and further up and spinning out again
    Up and further up she goes, up and out of the bed
    Up and out of the bed and down the hall where she stops for moment
    and turns and says
    "Are you still here?"
    And then reaches high and dangles herself like a child's dream from the rings of Saturn
