lyrics

When you called,
I checked my voice for the woman you want
+ she didn't show
She's caught in infinite appointments,
oils & ointments away...

I dream of you,
out like a light on the clinic floor
I hear your voice
say "Sister, isn't this what you're in it for?"
"Daughter, isn't this what you wanted – this
helplessness and wantonness?"

Half of what I say, I mean to swallow
and most of what I swallow I should spit
Cause if you whistled right, I'd probly follow,
and if you raised your pipe, I'd take the hit

And it's not right:
I never learned how not to melt on sight
I wake up hard
in the middle of a mare(')s(-)long night,
+ try to purge what I've been addled with,
(remember men that I've been saddled with)

Well the truth is you terrified me enough
When you were just an omen of my lie
These guilty dreams I get of murdering you don't end
But I bet you love it and you'll never die

Not your girl
Not a shadow of your empty dad
Not your pearl
Not the oysterless opal you wish you had

From my cloud, to the stream of things
(as if it mattered, in the scheme of things)
