lyrics

I bummed to catch the train,
instead I caught the rain,
caught the sogginess,
of my old blue jeans,
caught lights of the road,
pigeons shitting glue
caught fish in newspapers,
and my hair pulled too,
got my teeth punched bloody
my intestines burned
dragging out the bottom,
to the tar and dirt
oh no

It keeps me writing still
desk lamp diagonal
deep in a heart of the night
when my mind is full
I pull myself apart
from my light ribcage
octopus in salt
inks on the white bleached page
Pulling lemon lungs
with guitar strings
well I can laugh it up
as the plaster drips
oh no

I ate the paint chippings
and soured all my teeth
with my eyes soap dry
and in my boxers skinny
and I sat and hummed
and put my fingers deep
in the carpet for crumbs
and insect sticky remains
when I broke down constructions
in the bare wooden wall
I made my stomach sick
and caught strange animals
oh no
