lyrics

Take me around back...The little lord is lying, stiff on the bed. The sick room's curtains have crusted over. The man-servants count the household woes. Mother worries - she worries so - 'cause uncle Clarence can't be stirred by anything. Not by queens, and not by whores...not even for his favorite drink.

Set the table for the feast of decay!
The worms as guests at the feast of decay!

What goes on in my head? Science will never know.

Uncle Clarence, now they won't come home.
Dearest Clarence, now there's nobody home.
Even so, he's the man of the hour...
Now, dig right in, we're fully-victualed - family for nourishment.

I fancy I'll make myself a rump roast tonight.
I fancy I'll make myself a rump roast, a rump roast.

Oh, you don't know me that damned well - I'm fixin' to feed a portion to my cats. As much as I desire I can't eat it all. I can't eat it all.
It was an unfortunate happening, but didn't happen at the workplace, so there is no comp. I will instead, feast on his head.
I didn't get that train set, so I'll have my revenge.

What goes on in my head? Science will never know.

Uncle Clarence, now they won't come home.
Dearest Clarence, now there's nobody home.
Oh, what will we do?
Oh, what will we do? What will we do?

about

Arsenic Tea Party Flint, Michigan

ATP is a Flint/Detroit-based, high-energy Avant-Garde Rock outfit formed in 2019; whose music is dedicated to taking an introspective look at all the things that make us tick in a relatable way - then makes you dance drunk on their ashes.

ATP is poison to the paradigm, toxic to the status quo. It's asylum from the current sociopolitical climate, freedom personified. It's for you, it's for all.
