Here's the text from which the lyrics to this piece are taken:
You're a Good Killer
In order to live, you've got to be a demolisher. You take plants and animals that were once alive and rip them apart with your teeth, then disintegrate them in your digestive system.
Your body is literally on fire inside, burning up the oxygen you suck into your lungs.
You didn't actually cut down the trees used to make your house and furniture, but you colluded with their demise.
Then there's the psychological liquidation you've done: killing off old beliefs you've outgrown, for instance.
I'm not trying to make you feel guilty -- just pointing out that you have a lot of experience with positive expressions of destruction.
Can you think of other forms this magic takes? As an aspiring master of pronoia, it's one of your specialties -- a talent you have a duty to wield with energetic grace.
