lyrics

You knocked me up and then (Kid's Bones)
You knocked me down the stairs
You chalked it up to god
You packed your bags for church

Kid's bones in the yard, dry as the sun bakes
I'll gather them all as my hands shake

You left me all alone (two months)
To bleed and bleed
You called me on the phone (to say)
You were type AB

Hours in the house spent scouring for your things
Fires in the yard devour all your things
Ashes in the baby bottles from your things
Hunger in the days to come craves your things

Kid's bones in the yard, dry as the sun bakes
I'll gather them all as my hands shake
Piece him together as best I can with what I can find
He drags his skull, doesn't mind
I draw a bath and wash the dirt from his mouth
He starts to laugh, but nothing comes out
