Oh comely 
I will be with you when you lose your breath  Chasing the only
 Meaningful memory you thought you had left
With some pretty bright and bubbly  Terrible scene that was doing her thing on your chest 
But oh comely 
It isn't as pretty as you'd like to guess 
In your memory you're
 Drunk on your awe to me
It doesn't mean anything at all

Oh comely 
All of your friends are all letting you blow
 Bristling and ugly
 Bursting with fruits falling out from the holes 
Of some pretty bright and bubbly  Friend you could need to say comforting things in your ear

But oh comely  There isn't such one friend that you could find
Here standing next to me only my enemy 
I'll crush him with everything i own
Say what you want to say hang for your hollow ways
 Moving your mouth to pull out all your miracle for me

Your father made fetuses with flesh licking ladies  While you and your mother were asleep in the trailer park
 Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums 
The music and medicine you needed for comforting 
So make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving 
And pluck all your silly strings and bend all your notes for me
Soft silly music is meaningful magical
The movements were beautiful all in your ovaries 
All of them milking with green fleshy flowers  While powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines  Smelling of semen all under the garden was all you were needing 
When you still believed in me
Say what you want to say and hang for your hollow ways
 Moving your mouth to pull out all your miracle for me

I know they buried her body with others 
Her sister and mother and 500 families 
And will she remember me 50 years later
I wished i could save her in some sort of time machine 
Know all your enemies 
We know who our enemies are
Know all your enemies 
We know who our enemies are

 Goldaline my dear
We will fold and freeze together
Far away from here
 There is sun and spring and green forever
But now we move to feel
For ourselves inside some strangers stomach
 Place your body here
Let your skin begin to blend itself with mine
