i don't know where you are
envisioned as a star
it floats above and it stays in touch
and it don't care who you are

i think that i need drugs
but i think i'd take too much
so my fingertips feel like cement
like my mother's decent push

somewhere far from here
far from the tears
you've been crying, i can tell
like some child that you held
you're that child now
you're my brother in the clouds
he died so i was born
all in circles like the world
around the sun

the bruises on her neck
they fade into her chest
she's not comfortable with you around
it's just what you'd expect

the child's growing feet
my brother bares his teeth
her stomach swells and sweetly smells
of honeydew on leaves

somewhere far from here
with the ocean to your ears
so if you're crying i can't tell
if you need something yell
like my brother did
in his ghostly punishment
he lives with me now
and he dances on the sound
of her voice
she didn't want this dream but now
she's got no choice
as the weight in her belly
drags her down
