Oh, mostly I never knew which way was out
Once it was on, it was on, and that was that
The umbilicus was a faucet that fountained rabid blood
And I spun on my wheel like a laboratory rat

I was an electrical storm on the bathroom floor, clutching the bowl
My blood was full of gags and other people’s diseases
And my monstrous little memory had swallowed me whole
Oh, it was the year I officially became the Bride of Jesus

In love in love in love you laugh in love
You move I move and one more time with feeling
I love you love I laugh you laugh, I saw you in half
And the stars are splashed across the ceiling

Oh, the urge to kill somebody was basically overwhelming
I had such hard blues down there in the supermarket queues
I had a sudden urge to become someone, someone like you
Who had started out with less than anyone I ever knew

In love in love I love you love I laugh you laugh
I move you move and one more time with feeling
I love you love I laugh you laugh, I’m sawn in half
And all the stars are splashed across the ceiling

And oh, you come shyly. And softly to the hole to drink
Come as far as the edge of my blood and then swim
And in the bathroom mirror I see me vomit in the sink
And all through the house we hear the hyena’s hymns

Of love I love you love I love you love I laugh you laugh
I move you move you move and one more time with feeling
I love you love I laugh you laugh we saw each other in half
And all the stars are splashed and splattered across the ceiling
