Birth In Reverse

Album: St. Vincent (2014)
  • Oh what an ordinary day
    Take out the garbage, masturbate
    I'm still holding for the laugh

    The dogs will bark, so let them bark
    The birds will cry, I'll let them cry
    Here's my report from the edge

    Like a birth in reverse
    What I saw through the blinds
    You could say that I'm sane
    In phenomenal lies
    I'm the cause; make a turn
    Near the party line
    Like a birth in reverse
    In America

    This too will haunt me through the war
    Laugh all you want, but I want more
    'Cause what I'm swearing, I never sworn before

    Like a birth in reverse
    What I saw through the blinds
    You could say that I'm sane
    In phenomenal lies
    I'm the cause; make a turn
    Near the party line
    Like a birth in reverse
    In America

    Like a birth in reverse
    What I saw through the blinds
    You could say that I'm sane
    In phenomenal lies
    I'm the cause; make a turn
    Near the party line
    Like a birth in reverse
    In America Writer/s: ANNE ERIN CLARK
