Cold water underneath a concrete floor, silent
Told mama I don't need her anymore when I left
Had a vision of another world and I drew a picture
Sad elision of another girl from my holy scripture

All I ever wanted was a piece
And now I'm down in a whole
Mark my face with a crease
Crowned and drowned in a fold
But in the end at least
I found a true twin soul
Learning to befriend a beast
Burning to defend us

Dead enemies alive and well again within me
Fed well on evil eyes and bathtub gin and skinned meat [tinned meat]
Head South and watch Richmond sink into the mud and I feel better
Then your red mouth got me thinking of drinking blood forever and ever

All I ever wanted was a peach
Now it's gone brown in the bowl
Mark my face with a leach
Out on the town and it's a joke
On an endless leash I lead
A proud hound to his home
Lying to defend a beast
Dying and defenseless

(You're awful cruel sometimes/
It's awful true sometimes).
