lyrics

Well I wanted to do it for you
So I sat in the birthing chair
But you’re selfish and distracted
I could not think of one reason to stay there
Three sheets to the wind down in Copenhagen
And I’d swear there were ghosts in the room

You hold my hand like some kind of Bible
You never really believed
You say my name like some kind of prayer
You only half-remember
You say you love me like some Southern hymnal
You can’t find the page in
And I’m riffing it hard off his bare toothless grin
And I’d swear you deserve to be dead

I wanted to do it for you
So I sat in the birthing chair
But you’re selfish and distracted
I could not think of one reason to stay there
Strange clicks in the room like a ghost and I know I am dead
