lyrics

The slippery slope, the slippery slope
The broken beads, the slippery slope
The smell of patchouli, the slippery slope
The cats meow, the slippery slope
The whole caboodle, the knotted rope
The silken strings underneath the throat
The fumbling thumbs in the canvas coat
The glint of metal, the slippery slope.


The slippery slope, the slippery slope
The shining glass, the slippery slope
The light in the morning, the slippery slope
The pointed boots, the slippery slope
The endless 'bah!' in the violent smoke
The birds wasing wings in the little bird boat
The tiny twitch on the TV remote
The bloodless tongue, the slippery slope.

The slippery slope, the slippery slope
The hostile thought, the slippery slope
The fenced off garden, the slippery slope
The holding pattern, the slippery slope
The gusting wail of a timeless mope
The poignant warning of a solo note
The warm dark touch of an inside joke
The beaten path.

The bad ol' bears hauled me up the stairs
I didn't say my prayers, the bad ol' bears.
Bad ol' bears.


The slippery slope, the slippery slope
The whole caboodle, the knotted rope
The silken strings underneath the throat
The fumbling thumbs in the canvas coat
The glint of metal.
