it cuts me every time
oh, when you're poison syllables align
and in that old, familiar way
my tongue, it acquires the taste
of metal and blood
and suffice it to say
i've thrown all of your Buttons away
though now, my moms.. still wears.. your coat
on a scorching summer day...

"oh, hide and seek! down by the crooked creek
i think it's just what you need!
Okay, I'm counting!!!"

i better never hear if you refer to him as your son or your boy
oh, 'cause fuck your DNA
that don't mean shit if you've never heard him laugh or seen him play
and just a little fyi:
he has the soul of the gentlest giant
and a place exists when the tectonics shift
where you can never, ever touch him

hey, are it! when did you get smart as shit, Mr. Ulalume? i'll hook you up if you'd just be cool

"hey hey, big bro
do you think God will know?
that not all of me is pure...
that i live with scars from the scourge"

no, hey you, come here...
oh my god!, do you see what i see?!
that white dot is an angel, dear
and she's loved you for ten billion years!

oh oh oH oh OH (x3)
don't let him change you, dear
cause my hope is measured in fear & darker shades of fear
