I cleared the weeds off of her home
I tore the seams of all of your (her) clothes
I stole the seeds out of her bowl
I broke the mattress springs just like chicken bones

There was a time I walked freely in the night
And I kissed you in alleys and bars
Yeah I felt every sting of desire
But it’s gone.

I killed the bees with the rusty garden hose
Fell to my knees like I was before a throne

I can’t see anything
Inside the box you left with Touya’s things
Just some of your hair, and pieces of string
Tied to a shard of glass
But I’ll take it with me
Yeah I take it

There was a time I walked freely in the night
And I kissed you in alleys and bars
Yeah I felt every sting of desire
But it’s gone.

I suck down a drink and sink into that hole
I wait for the dream to hit me like a stone
Where I sprout wings and hover all alone
