lyrics

Hold on to your hats and your heads
she’s opening wide
she’s sucking up air
and she’s spitting out monsters from inside
400 nails
to build her a boat
went sliding down her throat
safety pins, silverware, bottle tops
she won’t stop till she tears
are you well
sea Shell
swing your hips
abandon ship
tiny cry
swallowed up inside
nurses can’t shut her jaw
hide your children
hide your face
pills and needles
won’t puncture this voyage
as she sails farther away
till her belly’s too heavy
and she sinks like an anchor
and rises a savior
and the sea
is filled
with awe
sails will catch your breath
pull you to your death
hunger rots the hull
is she trying to save us all
you aren’t well
here’s a spell
are you cured
who can be sure
here’s your cup swallow up
round her waist
around the sea
bellies ache
with buttons and keys
ring around
your tiny throat
the faces will sink
and she will float
