Lyrics Edit

Curdled like milk in the summer heat
My skull’s gone soft
My head is spoiled
My heart’s a rabid dog trying to
Put its teeth in you
You thought you saw light
But it was forest fires eating me alive
My limbs are dead and dry
My ribcage cradles dirt and weeds
I’m empty inside

And I will never be able to love you
I couldn’t if I tried
And I will lay down next to you
But I fear a dead body would feel warm compared to mine
'Cause I’m barren on the inside
I’m barren on the inside

You tried to make love to my empty womb
Tried to stuff me like a doll with pieces of you
But it all seeps from my loosened seams
I took myself apart and cut off my strings
And scraped the remains from my starving bowels
Collected them into garbage piles
To try in bags, sink in the lake
And bury at the bottom all my sad mistakes

And I will never be able to love you
I couldn’t if I tried
And I will lay down next to you
But I fear a dead body would feel warm compared to mine
'Cause I’m barren on the inside
I’m barren on the inside
