Every word is true


Out of the womb so slippery and smooth
There’s things in the bedroom that you couldn’t choose
Your head was a vortex of sound from the left
But the music was nothing so have some regrets
And you ran into loneliness blood from your lips
Moving mountains of pavement face first with a kiss
Move to the mountains or into the sea
There’s a body within you that’s dying to breathe
Made peace with the narcissist’s vision of love
It’s burned on your tongue it’s all of the above
So rip out your lungs and build up the flesh
From the bruises and blood that you got when you left
And your brother some giant with holes in his heart
Skin too thin to be eager, too bruised from the start
But you were natured or nurtured to one of a kind
They taught us to hate so we hated just fine
And we’re all gonna die
So it’s all gonna be alright
Being born slowly with looks from the docs
Mother was yelling, “He’s twice what you’ve got”
Growing up awkward with no music on
The lunchroom was empty and full of no one
You ran into loneliness chasing a lie
Bleeding from the mouth but you never cried
They took you away and you still believed that
Change is always better and change you always need
How’s a life lesson taste on the tongue
Is it sweet after sour and salty from the run?
Bruises are empty, blood is still free
Don’t tell them anything that you wanna keep
You walked in the front door hoping to be
A new place new person new people to meet
Nature or nurture just one and a kind
They taught you to hate so you hated just fine
And we’re all gonna die
So it’s all gonna be alright
