I am frozen in the ice parade
The little babes that are afraid to join me
They are fresh from the womb
Fresh from a tomb in a bloody balloon
Floating up like secrets they are dancing in the gloom
Taking aching hips apart to how it was before the start
When I was well, do you remember that spell?
When your love entered my body like the sea in a shell
When you touched me warm and lovely and the ink in the well
Well the ink it would spill, I would welcome you in
With my lips apart my fingers all a-trembling

Needle pricks my thumb to let me know he's still with me
Living is easy when you're deaf and dumb
Death is fun if you don't want to be a mum

Do you remember that day, do you remember that time?
Before the great decline
When every feeling was mine and every feeling was fine
And when it didn't feel like I was held together with wire
New-age vampire
Sedimentary sewing in a chair by the fire
Lazarus is growing I can feel him inside me
I'm the chosen one I am the blushing bride

When the bough breaks well the baby will fall
And I won't miss him at all
There's a hairy hairy hell inside the hole in the wall
And in the tank in the hall it is the size of a snail
Like an alien inside an egg all covered in goo
He is wrinkled and blue, it is a trait from his father
But his mother is too because she just isn't happy
What is there to do to stop a girl going crazy?
I can't even give up 'cause my body won't let me
I think of the baby and it feels like he's judging
Read about a daughter who came out of there biting
Full set of teethies, pearly and frightening
