Persistent Fading

Chatting can be difficult [F]

With your tongue removed [N]

Humming can be difficult [K8]

When your vocal chords snap [N]

Huffing, though, is easier [F]

Unless your neck is severed [N]

And then you must appease her [F]

And glue those parts dismembered [K8]

We might resort to semaphore [Ethetran]

Had we but eyes to see [Beefy]

And (please excuse the metaphor) [Ethetran]

And let the blind be [Dassn't Say]

Morse code, it seems, is all we've got [Ethetran]

Incessantly tapping [archaeopteryx]

dot dot dot; dot dash dash dot [Ethetran]

Don't let us be caught napping [Beefy]

At pheromones, we both just stink [Kansas Sam]

At flavor, no parfum [K8]

Our eyes are Pepto Bismol pink [Dassn't Say]

Let's hit the shower room [Kansas Sam]
