Factory B is the second part of the ¡Vicuña! song cycle where the subsequent movement relies on two altered loops of its immediate predecessor. Because they are looped live, the three parts must always be performed in numerical order.


How self controlled you are
Assuredly poised
How clever you pose
Chaste, brave, content
To hide your dissent

It's just a formality
Your humility
Passion cooled to obligation
Lip service, hollow motion
Counting cost for merit gain
That's your malady
Your false fealty

Your deeds unfinished
Your measure lacking
Strengthen what remains before it dies
You say you're rich but you are poor
You say you're good but your heart is cold
Strengthen what remains before it dies
Strengthen what remains before it dies

If you kept a record of my sins
I would not stand
I could not stand
But with you there is forgiveness
With you there is mercy everlasting
You awe me
You awe me
