lyrics

gone and covered her tracks
now we buried that girl
good to see everybody's moved on
with her chilling white teeth
and her brutes and her beasts turned her back from the dawn
had the rosiest cheeks that you ever did she when she lied

keeps her heart in a tree keeps her heart in a tree
if you find it tell me - burn it burn it burn it

oh please she cries as the firelight sweeps her away
oh please she cries as the undertow pulls her deeper within

what a tireless pain as she cries from the shame of bein born
like a fawn knobby kneed as her eyes they are pleading to make it all stop

stop holding on to me stop holding my hands as im gasping for breath
had the rosiest cheeks that you ever did see when she died
oh my bedridden child you have come from the wild with currents that change the sea
oh my bedridden child your fever's gone high and you've seen what should not be seen

and she wants to hid from those she cant hide from
and she wants to be alone to lick her own wounds and to
bury her bones
