The broadcast spreader goes around and around
disseminating seeds of malcontent
Unable to discern between poison and manure
Lacking any real motive, she just needs something to do

The broadcast spreader is active
Slinging seeds to who knows where

The distribution of this indiscriminate device
Is neither even nor precise
Like a finely crafted watch that only ticks behind yr back

The broadcast spreader is active
Slinging seeds to who knows where
And what her spawn begets
Is none of here concern
And what becomes of the broadcast spreader
When the job is done
Is the detection of new ground on which to rotate

The turmoil hits a lull and every hand is satisfied
It's time to get creative.


from Love it, Don't Choke it to Death, released March 2, 2010
