  • Your mother hung herself in the National Theater
    When she was four months pregnant with your sister
    Who would have been thirteen years old today
    Does that make you feel any less alone in the world?

    Your dad, I'm sure, he tried his best
    He thought you'd be better off living with your grandmother
    He didn't realize that she had already given up
    Baby, your family, they are just losers

    I've become such a wolf around you
    My thoughts go dark and dull, out of focus
    Have no peace in my mind
    Because you
    You've touched me

    The screech owls are going insane outside my house
    It is the season for trouble and self destruction
    All of my friends, they are falling apart
    But not me, I'm in control

    Remember the exquisite corpse that we created together
    We laughed at the time, it seemed so impenetrable
    But reading it now I think I understand
    What it is that we are trying to steal from each other

    I've become such a wolf around you
    My thoughts go dark and dull, out of focus
    Have no peace in my mind
    Because you
    You've touched me Writer/s: Kevin Barnes
