lyrics

Sing me to sleep,
crawl past the dreams,
right to the marrow and sinew I hid underneath.

And my teeth,
falling from me, bloodied and free:
desperate for hunger and bitter for all they've not been.

And this body stares up at me
waiting to see
what tarot I'll deal after all that I've swallowed and seen.

But she says I just wanna be clean,
so I'll scrub till I bleed,
and choke out the phlegm in my throat from the smoke we both eat.

But I wake up and lift my own head.

Because I've been unconscious for days.
I can't be awake.
I fed my left side to the beasts of the wild and the strays.

Because you said hold on to this:
a kick to the wrist,
a fist to the face as the salty red liquid is quickly displaced.

Because the Bible just taught you to hate
the fucked up ideals
you left in your brain as you bite down on faith that you'll never quite taste.

I'll scream "Sorry it ended this way,"
but I'm not that sorry.
I'll watch my body, the blank stare I left on my face.

But today I won't get out of bed.

Slept for a week, just let it be.
