lyrics

One leg said to the other
I cannot stand it brother
Your step is long, your gait is wide
I'm always on the losing side

One eye said to the other
Was once you were my lover
Now you only look away
I don't see why you even stay

One arm thus it spoke to me
I am not whole, you are not free
We cannot move exactly as we please
The marginalized limb

One tooth said to another
It's hardly worth the bother
Up and down and all we get
Is dark, decay and emptiness

One leg said to the other
I'll not escape you brother
Every time I make a stride
I find you standing by my side

One arm thus it spoke to me
I am not whole, you are not free
We cannot move exactly as we please
Lung and liver
Tongue and heart
A body of complaining parts
A family that is tearing at the seams

The marginalized limb
