about

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.

lyrics

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!

Like you!

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

Having Fun with Pointed Things
Every night.
