If there is a point to this album, it is this: as long as you don't harm anyone else, you can be what you are.
The finish is all silvery, the edges razor-sharp
I keep it by my bed at night to play with in the dark.
Having Fun with Pointed Things, a hunger they are sating
I just can't keep away from them, so small and penetrating.
In school I was a sweet little boy, just a bit depressive.
But I'll grow out of it they said when I grow up in my head
And now I'm just aggressive ...
My friends all sort of fade away and everyone things I'm queer
but I still like to watch TV, I like to drink a beer.
Having Fun with Pointed Things while someone's back is turned
Might cut myself and draw some blood, at least I won't get burned!
And now it's time to put out the lights, at peace with every creature
With my pretty pointed things I'm ready for what tomorrow brings
I'll cut myself a future
