Nostrils caked in black dried blood
No hands in candles
No twin
No singing
Bang bang, way out in the distance
No glove, no love

Are you there? Are you listening?
It casts a shadow over Tennessee
Are you there? Are you listening?
I'll show you bubble and squeak

Bang bang
In my dreams, my teeth fall out and I crawl
Packing the dirt
The wind quits
And I put my ear to the ground

There's coffee downstairs every morning
I'll hide you under cover of tables
The flies won't touch you
You'll never be tempted

Any trembling you get is just dress rehearsal
I'll hide you when there's no shelter outside
Your cradle is a louse
Your bedspread runs ragged with mud and cigarettes

Posted high on the atoll
Silver mountains and quiet hiccups
The sickening, foul moon won't shine pain on your face
I'll just flit through the dark like a corpulent eel
Your comet falls overhead

You've left everything in a train that is pulling away from the station
Your teeth are forever falling out of your head

Your comet falls overheard
It straightens and falls to the earth

I bite
And I dance
And I pray
