Running With Scissors (All Rude Boys Remix)

The original concept of Running With Scissors was inspired by the complete works of my all-time favourite band, Liverpool-based new age electronica pioneers, Ladytron. It aims to recreate their broken glass lyrical style, telling the kind of tale synonymous to their output, through similarly sporadic flourish. Featured art is by Alexandra Goncharova.

running with scissors
playing with knives
blunt trauma honesty
paper cut lies
paper kite heartstrings
pay per view eyes
razor wire smiles
in a state of denial

hive mentality
siding with apathy
whistle stop gallantry
little but pageantry
prised apart
tapestry
vital parts
atrophy
tribal scars marking
the tracks of abstracted catastrophe

impacted cavities
fracturing passively
rapture free baptistery
subtracted rhapsody
redacted massively
actioning blasphemy
nature’s fatalities
over capacity
hungover casualties
waiting for amnesty
swung over gravel pits
moreover
casually

reverting to type
when uncertain of why
purging earth bleeds
beneath virginal skies
whittling slack to a workable size
quick to cut back interpersonal ties
hurting for urgency
playing for time
curfews as tight
as remaining supplies

running with scissors
playing with knives
blunt trauma honesty
paper cut lies
paper kite heartstrings
pay per view eyes
scissor kiss lips
belie razor wire smiles
making their way
to stand trial
still in a state of denial

running with scissors
playing with knives
blunt trauma honesty
paper cut lies
paper kite heartstrings
pay per view eyes
razor wire smiles
in a state of denial
