From the recording heart soup filagree

This was part of my visceral reaction as an artist, upon hearing the news of the 1400+ missing children kidnapped by our government. I didn't know how else to express it except as personal allegory. I feel like if I had actually used any imagery or references associated with such horrific horror that it would seem exploitative and not up to the seriousness of the situation, so I wanted to put it into terms of personal politics.
The title was originally written in my notebook, intended as a parody of Brain Salad Surgery, but this seemed a better use for the phrase. Not funny at all.
If I had the budget, I'd love to make a video of this for Thanksgiving release, so there'd be a whole Holiday theme to the album's videos (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year). Just dripping with blood and carnage.

 VINEGAR AND HONEY 
 MIXED INTO YOUR BITTER STEW
 AND JUST FOR YOU  
 IT’S ALL FROM ME 
 HEART SOUP FILAGREE
 
 MADE TO TASTE FOR YOU FROM ME
HEART SOUP FILAGREE
 
 HOW BOUT SOME?
 HOW BOUT SOME?
 HOW BOUT SOME?
 
 WITH A HINT OF POISONED APPLE
 ALL YOU NEED IS ONE SMALL BITE
 FEEL IT SLIDE DOWN YOUR THROAT
 AND TEAR YOU UP FROM THE INSIDE
 
HERE’S MY HEART
 SO BEAUTIFULLY DISPLAYED
WITH DRESSING AND POISON
 AND CURDLING TEARS
 HEARTBREAK AND SADNESS
 FERMENTED FOR YEARS
 
 THE SOUREST SORROW
 YOU EVER HAVE TASTED
 BOILING OVER FROM
 ALL THE YEARS WASTED
 
 HERE’S MY HEART
 HERE’S MY HEART
 HERE’S MY HEART
 
 NO NEED FOR INTROSPECTION
 JUST PAY THE ONE SMALL PRICE 
 COME ON GET THE INFECTION
 NO NEED TO ASK YOU TWICE
 
 WHEN THERE’S JUST NO MORE FORGIVENESS
 WHEN THE MADNESS CAN’T GO ON
 IT’S EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS
 AND STILL YOU CAN’T BE WRONG
 
 WHEN THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS
 YOU SOLD YOUR SOUL TO BELONG
 THE FEAST IS BLOODY AND GORY
 I JUST CAN’T GO ALONG
 
 JUST TAKE IT
 AND BAKE IT
 CHOP IT
 AND SHOP IT
 OIL IT
 AND BOIL IT
 SPIT IN IT
 AND SHIT IN IT
 AND SERVE IT ON
 BACK TO ME
 
CAUSE THAT’S HOW WE ROLL YOU SEE
 IT’S YOUR OWN RECIPE
 
 MADE TO TASTE FOR YOU FROM ME
 HEART SOUP FILAGREE
 
 WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR GONE
 WE’VE GOT TO MOVE ON
 HEART SOUP FILAGREE
 
 AND YOU SMOKE IT
 AND YOU CHOKE IT
  YOU CRUEL IT
 AND GRUEL IT
 YOU FOOL IT
 AND COOL IT
 

 HOT SOUP ON ICE
PRESENTED SO NICE
WITH VENOM AND SPICE
 
 MADE TO TASTE FOR YOU FROM ME
 WITH YOUR MASTER RECIPE
 
 HERE’S MY HEART
 HERE’S MY HEART
 HERE’S MY HEART
