Post subject:  [Lyrics] Sleep

My eyes, they swell like pregnant breasts
When the sun stirs me from my gentle rest
My skin, it smells like black sick meat

And when I wake it wears like wooly putty
To die a rotting smelly sack of silly flesh that looks like sickness
With yellow jackets pecking at my mumps disease
And from my mouth my tongue is hanging
Like a starving cord of nerves
ooooo ooooooo oooooo ooooooooooooo

I would be happy
Mired in bacterial death
Wheezing in the ejaculation like a lion after feasting
Yes, I would be happy
Oh, if only I could shoot the sun through the navel and pull its guts right through it
With an anger
Sleep hibernates the juices and the starches and the organs
While wild prostitutes
Gallop in the firepits
Of my head
Beating drums and shooting stars
Out of the mouths

My eyes, they swell like pregnant breasts
When the sun stirs me from my gentle rest
My skin, it smells like black sick meat
To die a rotting smelly sack of meat

Geez, Louise, which song is THIS? Never heard it! I think there's much I haven't heard, maybe?

One has to be careful when using the word "ejaculation" in a poem or song, but I kind of love this line: "Wheezing in the ejaculation like a lion after feasting," if that's the actual lyric!

It's from the unofficial Love Letters from Hell release. The most beautiful song I've ever heard about decaying flesh!

I seem to hear "starving cord of nerves", but it's difficult to tell and it still could be either.

I was thinking it could be that, too.

The second stanza is very powerful and I have been stuck reading it again and again. I think that this will prove to be much more effective towards emotion. My emotions are already stirred up and I think I will be hearing this song for a long time now.
