Headstones – Picture Frame Of Rage

Humiliation is a picture
And it’s painful but it fades
Cruelty is so vivid it’s the
Picture frame of rage
Pictures in the yearbook
Pictures with your friends
Pictures in the paper with your dates and
Who you’ve been

Cave in on pavement
With my mind clenched into a fist
Feeling better, feeling better, feeling better
Better than this

I know
It’ll make me go off if
I never move

Homicides and suicides and accidental shootings
Reporters on the TV
Well they’re frightening but they’re shooting
Pictures on TV
Pictures in my brain
Pictures of the nice things that have
Quenched the thirst for rage

Humiliation is a picture and it’s painful
But it fades
Cruelty is so vivid it’s the picture frame of rage
Pictures in the yearbook
Pictures with your friends
Pictures in the paper that tell you where you’ve been
