cycle iii man-machine lyrics – anorexia nervosa

i was to close this strange compendium…
fixed mirror…
this wall where i’ve climbed on to all the night /
the astonishing disarray of the body its shrewd tongue that has just disappeared /
i would have liked
“he has not to do this” …
nothing more was possible /
carnal torture & final stop…
this simple nothing
“set me free” …
pacify my burns /
flight …
reached belly & great smile …
