lyrics

My daddy said he killed a bear
Where the river cuts right through the ridge
And mother’s in the basement cleaning
Bleeding from her fleshy hips
And I came forth between those legs
My mouth as black as midnight sky
And dripping from the grips of death
My breath became entombed with life
And it starts snowing in December
Ivory canyons boot prints leave
I must be strong, do you remember
When I could barely climb that tree?
And I found some bullets from the war
My pockets weighted down with lead
I’ll hide them from my daddy for
I don’t believe he’d understand
That I became a man last fall
When wild dogs cross o’er the plains
When I put his coat on, boots and all
And with his rifle took my aim
Shot one dead across the brow
The others scattered through red leaves
Chopped his head off with my plow
And let it sit for several weeks
While he was off some place unheard of
Fighting villains unforeseen
Returned blank faced part of his ear was
Left back where he left his dreams
Now I listen to him holler, mother hiding from his rage
And every night I’m growing stronger something in my bones has changed
And something in the wind smells sweeter; I can hear the towns from miles away
And in the darkness as he beats her, something moves beneath my weight
And I am standing in the darkness; I feel nothing in my legs
A heart is something torn apart, a skull is something beneath my bed
