Garbage Ape

from Karlland by Ultraklystron



Totally just a song about a Dadaist newspaper comic character, no metaphors... unless.


defies explanations, loved yet never earning trust
before he arrives he's betrayed by his rancid musk
trash the block from tanks, blast like a blunderbuss
yeah I've seen the garbage ape and him is us

inexplicably present in places so unfitting
rattle the block unstopped by those so unwitting
rain, sleet or snow like the post he's never quitting
try to comprehend what the joke is but no one is kidding

oh it's so serious, sincere and super weird
the surface layer clear yet beneath's a wary fear
because what's expected isn't what has appeared
as it rattles down the streets to hollers and cheers

refuse clatters and splatters yet none can look away
everyone around is feeling endlessly shook today
barring those already lost to the menagerie
the dadaist felines aligning the whole cadre

praise to the padre with steel gripped in each hand
barely bipedal, yet he wields his street plans
doesn't bang metal, he just shakes his damn cans
not even the worst part, naw that's his damn fans
