nebraska safe haven law--a kind idea gone horribly bad


kitty's gone missing
but no one is ever exactly where they mean to be
daddy is waving one hand;
with the other he steers him away

bring them all to me!
bring your burdens to me!
leave your worries and come to yourselves!
(and comfort yourselves)

shitting and shrieking and puking and reeking
oh why, lord, did you do this to me?
you gave us woman for fucking
but goddamn, the price that we pay!


thank god for mercy in Mother Nebraska
they know what it means to be done
i know for certain i'll never forgive myself
that's why i kept one


i know it's certain i'll never forgive myself

She sees loads of ugly and beauty in the world. Trying to capture that sweet and sour thing in a song is what she’s mostly trying to do.
