Perhaps she’ll have a hammer Perhaps she’ll have a nail Perhaps she’ll kindly fasten Your body to your sail And if she is the wind And if she is the change She could fill your lungs Again and again Should you start to rust As lovers often do You could turn to dust At the bottom of the blue And if she is the storm And if she is the rain She could fill your lungs Again and again And if she is the moon And if she is the strange She could fill your lungs Again and again There is a feral wound A benevolent bite But my teeth are falling out mama Night after night A feral wound The taste of light But my teeth are falling out mama Night after night

Breathe deep my little lamb Breathe deeper than before Breathe until your lungs catch fire and then baby Breathe just a little more Swim now my six gilled serpent Swim swift my morning star Swim through the rivers of my blood Swim up the stairs and through the walls I was dreaming of a velvet pearl Strung around the neck of a water girl She moves with the rhythm of the rolling tide She floats like a feather under falling moonlight Daughter of the water the song of the sea I gave her my heart she fed it back to me And it sure feels good yeah it sure feels fine Self-pity been taking all my time Ah gimme more yeah gimme some more Don’t I look my best lying face down on the floor Take me a break me but baby Don’t waste the pieces Forsake me and make me Into something facetious Love me and lick me Burn a hole through your tongue ‘Cause I’m the shape-shifter mama And I’ve only begun I was dreaming of a velvet pearl Slung around the neck of a water girl

Pull down your silver blinds Try and get some sleep tonight Dream of America and how she’s calling you In glittered robes and your mother’s shoes There's hours still to come undone To hide away from that vicious sun Carpels concealed in a lily’s bell A maiden’s shell Water confined to an ancient well An evening spell Walk to the water’s edge Move slow so nothing shows Hold on to pale thoughts and pale limbs As they drift as they sink and swim It’s been years now you’ve quietly hummed To still the words to that beating song Carpels concealed in a lily’s bell A maiden’s shell Water confined to an ancient well An evening spell

Trying to get my heart back on the level Dying to get my feet back on the ground I wrote a postcard to the Devil Asking why she don’t come around As the years go by my blood gets thicker My patience seems to thin as the years grow My eyes are turning yellow and I get sicker Every time they turn on the radio Darling I can’t do this by myself To taint the water baby I need your help I’ve burrowed in the sewers of this city I’ve seen your face and I’ve marked your door I’m coming for you and Lord knows I aint pretty A malignant insect crawling across your floor Darling I can’t do this by myself To taint the water baby I need your help Darling I can’t do this on my own The venom is sinking deeper in my bones

There was a house where we slept And a blue girl left her blue pearls Dripping ‘round my neck And onto our bed There was a house that we kept And the blue girl liked the doors closed So we wouldn’t upset All the colour she’d left And I’ll be in the other room if you need me And the home that we made And the pearls that she placed And the music you played And the warmth that I gave Didn’t we keep her safe Didn’t we keep her safe And I’ll be in the other room if you need me You’ll be soaking in the bathtub for the time being Are you staring at the ceiling What are you feeling If you’re feeling And I’ll be in the other room if you need me You’ll be soaking in the bathtub for the time being Guess I’ll see you in the hours while we’re sleeping What are you dreaming If you’re dreaming

The world now she’s spinning Just a little more out of time Lay my body in a bathtub Distill me in brine Tell me that I’m older And too cultured for this time Tell me that I’m younger And that I look divine Everything is fucked You know people that’s a fact But you don’t need me to tell you that Unimpressive Upset Uninspired Undevout But I’m gonna love you baby Till the world spits us out Under the pressure Under the skin Under your nails That’s how the dirt gets in Deeper and deeper Dripping down the well You keep digging and digging For diamonds in hell I am hiding in the earth Hiding in the air I am hiding deep inside the nest Of your chimney-smoke hair A Siamese cat in a yellow field A silver woman with a silver shield I am waiting there for you I have killed their sons and daughters I have choked all their martyrs I have cut the tongue from the ocean blue All because you asked me to I am waiting here for you I am calling out to you I am falling down for you Under the pressure Under the skin Under your nails That’s how the dirt gets in Deeper and deeper Dripping down the well You keep digging and digging For diamonds in hell Unimpressive Upset Uninspired Undevout But I’m gonna love you baby till the world spits us out

I’ve danced before All flesh and warmth But these hospital floors Can’t move me anymore I’ve held the night While she was bleeding light And I should take her side But I’m just a little bit tired And I’m dressed in someone else’s limbs Don’t know where they start And where I end I’m wearing someone else’s thoughts Can’t shake them off I’ll rinse these clothes Hang them out below My neighbour’s window So she might not know She’s not alone In being alone As this Summer sadness Fills our homes And I’m dressed in someone else’s limbs Don’t know where they start And where I end I’m wearing someone else’s thoughts Can’t shake them off Bone dented sheets Eye splintered ceilings Stories I weave in hours made for sleeping Bone dented sheets Eye splintered ceilings Stories that creep In hours meant for dreaming Little baby blooms in digital bile Lay me down on the back of a crocodile Artificial heart hypocritical sick Mama's little doll's got a bone to pick

I notice my head on the wall I lift my body up and begin to crawl On all fours I hang myself on the vine Don’t mind me yeah I’m just killing time At the centre of the earth there’s a prison Where they keep all the dead Who have risen And in the stomach of the ocean in the cold Lives every lie you never told Oh I know that it’s not fair You’re the one that I don’t want to share You wanna know what I am thinking? I am thinking that you know That I’m sinking in a well of woe This blinding light, this hellish glow Two hundred different eyes on you One hundred bodies to break in two Oh I know that it’s not fair Oh I know that you still care You’re the one that I don’t want to share Oh I know that it’s not fair Oh I know that you still care Your voice so soft, your skin so bare You’re the one that I don’t want to share Little baby, don’t you cry Press your face against the sky Press your ear against this shell And know I only meant you well Pretty baby, don’t be afraid Sink your skin into the waves Sink your lips into the lips Of the world at your fingertips Sweetest baby, don’t be scared I’m not going anywhere

She stayed by my side when I was a mess She held my head when I needed rest She gave me hope when hope was a myth She held my hand when I clenched my fist She is the loveliest heart in a body She is liquid lunar and softly She tells me that she loves me Over and over again All of my friends let me down But oh no not she She aint my lover But she used to be She is strong She is silk She is black as my boots She is white as milk She is open She is here She is there She is long long hair She is full She is wonderful She is the sun that never sets She is the bright blue sky She is the moon which never rests And I just want her to know As I sit here at her piano Playing notes that I don’t know Just how much I love her so She is the loveliest heart in a body She is liquid lunar and softly She tells me that she loves me Over and over again All of my friends let me down But oh no not she She aint my lover But she used to be All of my friends let me down But oh no not she She aint my lover But she used to be
