We're molting underneath
Stuffy undershirts
You're up for anything
That isn't going to hurt

In the summer '99
Hid our feathers underground
You put your thumb in my eye
To wipe the glint out

Six years later found we
Joined with the rancid holy
Baked bread, gave birth
Told old stories

I kept my secrets close

It isn't what it seems
At least that's what we say
Tarred in feathers, change our names
It all ends up the same

Ten years later found we
Joined with the ranks of the unholy
Baked bread, we die
Sold our sad stories

And you in all your glory
Turn your face from me
