We go down like moles
Claws dig an endless hole
We descend on fours
Our snouts lead us on

We fall down without notes
And so we build a barren moat
Work through the night, our eyes opaque
Our fingers cold, kisses in rain

We fall down in pairs
Moles locked in a blind stare
Your pearly mouth, it cracks a smile
Without a sound, the blind lead blind

We, the animals of prey
Have become cannibals untamed
Under the stars the moles go far
Into the earth like a sinking stone

We ascend as swans
Glide through blue waters calm
Exhausted head, it falls asleep
Under a rock, after the dig

We wake up as swans
Songs sung for no one
Left in the night, the moles asleep
Forgotten prey, dead rodent stink

We get up as swans
Big bird in a small pond
Our eyes are smiles, our fingers cold
Our lips are frowns, our toes have mold

We, the animals of prey
Have become cannibals untamed
Dug in the night, we use our spit
And make a moat where we play dead

We, the animals of prey
Have become cannibals untamed
Dug in the night, we use our spit
And make a moat where we play dead

We play dead, we play dead
We play dead, we play dead
We play dead, we play dead

We play dead, we play dead
We play dead
