in the city



in the city
oh the city!
to feel pretty,
you’re so pretty
in the city,
oh the city
dirty
to be oh so dirty
in the city
dizzy
so damn dizzy,
in the city,
oh the city
you’re so pretty
but so dirty,
oh so dirty
and so dizzy
in the city
oh the city!

miracle




I thought you didn't want to come into this world
I don't blame you
I'm still trying to like it myself

Against the bloody torrent
Inside your mother's vessel you held fast
While we older, wiser guardians
In our hurry and worry thought you dead

You have many miles and years to travel yet
And as many dangers pose still a threat
Have no doubt that life is precious
And that you're a miracle from the beginning

sorry





i’m sorry
i beg you
on my knees
with my hands in the air
tears flooding down my face
beating my chest with my fists
mea culpa mea culpa
I take everything back
I regret everything
i’ve ever said and done
on all fours, look
bashing my head on the rocks
blood running hot
I wish myself dead
I question why
i was even born
I’m crying out  to never exist again
please
because that’s what it is to be sorry
and never want to be sorry again
