Lyrics for 'Tension Makes A Tangle' by '10000 Maniacs'
( Music: John Lombardo/lyric: Natalie Merchant )

As Frail Hinges
Pivot On A Case's Door
Souvenirs From Places
Containers Change
With Each Occasion

A Cellophane Encased
Display Of Paper
To Credit Years Of Service
A Tool Of Central Enterprises
The Early Hope
For Permanence
The Words
The Rings
The Social Security
A Miracle Is High Tragedy

Thought Mistaken
For A Memory
Clear The Dust From
Smiles In Boxes
Pass A Patterned Wall
Recall Their Voices

A Local Post
Will List Your Friends
In Order Of
The Lawn Scattered

Tins Feed Birds
A Portion Baked For
Absent Guests
And The Mass Edition Icon
God Sent Comfort
Your Salvation
But Who Grants Absolution
For Sins That
Never Were Committed

Tension Makes A Tangle
Of Each Thought
Becomes An Inconvenience
Sound As It Never Penetrates
As Servile Edges
Break And

Thought Mistaken
For A Memory
A Dress Length
A Fractured Family Tie
Another Christening
