Allergy.
This tune appeared on the album Another Life / Another Live buy it on CD here.

All this scratching
has been getting me nowhere
thick skin etching
getting me high

thick skin blisters
and the blisters bled
no-one's listening
so no-one is fed up

finger finds purchase
and the paw's got to dig
tunnel down deep till all you see
is what you did

gotta have an allergy
to the world today
only way to explicate
what's been crossing my head

mile by mile we march
man by man we conquer
rabbit army rises
rage and armour

all this itching
has been getting me nowhere
all this wretching
just a little rabbit cough

thick skin shivers
and blisters soft
but digging hardens paws
and the feeling falls right off

the tunnel taught me all of
everything that it ought to
tunnel tunnels vision
most efficiently

gotta have an allergy
to feeling anything at all today
gotta have a thick skin thick skin
thick thick thick

mile by mile we march
man by man we conquer
rabbit army rises
rage and armour

someone was whining
about the price of gas today
someone was whining
about their twin SUVs yesterday

I remember 9/11
someone caught solidarity
gave blood gave Love
gave cash gave thanks

but I remember 9/23
suffering back to normalcy
he blamed Hussein
the gays and the gas tax
yeah - like that makes sense to me

all this bitching's
been getting me nowhere
all this rubbing
has been getting me high

it shouldn't be coming
as any great think
my thick skin is thinning
the blisters weep

breaking me in
that's best done swiftly
breaking me down
that could take some time

breaking out somewhere
that's what I've been thinking
killing them quickly
never crossed my mind

mile by mile we march
man by man we conquer
rabbit army rises
rage and armour
