For Mama. Happy Birthday. (This is not a song about you.)


He was in the gutter
A needle for a friend
He caught the dirt and made it work
Living all over again

Present times were fading
Open up and let her in
The jungle she was wading into
Soaking up her skin

And she would tighten the grip
She would
She would

She took her rounds and with a fire cut herself a piece of it
Now every time she’s got to make a little peace with it

The baby in the corner
Waiting for a bite
The hounds are loose and she can choose to
To sit for his delight
