  • 2 The Perfect Crime #1 / The Day I Knew You'd Not Come Back

  • So it started in your ovaries
    A stone, a seedling
    Our bones entwined
    A warning from the orderlies
    A bulge for bleeding
    This will take it's time

    So it all ran down the telephone
    And saw me clearly
    Only nine years old
    Calmly cast in styrofoam
    In my Tony Lamas
    When the shock takes hold

    Mom, there are hurdles here
    That I cannot seem to clear
    Dad, there are demons around
    And though I said that I
    Said I’d be all right, I lied
    I lied
    I lied
    I lied

    So fix your brood and belly now
    Get your fingers wringing
    Get your loins unstained
    It’ll eat you from the inside out
    Until it comes out screaming
    Until it all falls away

    Dad, there are hurdles here
    That I cannot seem to clear
    Mom, there are demons around
    And though I said that I
    Said I’d be all right, I lied
    I lied
    I lied
    I lied
