So you spit on riches,
So you spit on everyone
Spit so much your mouth is dry and you choke
Feed yourself on curses
Feed yourself on bitter dirt
Gorging at the table until it hurts

Down in the pit
Live with the snakes
The smell of fear
And all our hate
Our bodies slide
Pile up
To reach up to
The smell above
We see them laugh
Haha, our bellies ache
We'd split their sides
To feed our face
We pass the time
Mouths they twist
Fangs they show
Where lips would kiss

Who knows what whispers say
I'll be on the water's edge
Playing in the bay
I find a resting place
Lay down in my body now
This is what I pray

If I'm to die someday
Taken by the arrows
I vow that I will stay
True to the love I have
I will not surrender it
I will not be shamed

In life we make mistakes
But if you drink the poison and
Come away unscathed
Don't let the memory fade
Remember all your weakness and
Remember all your pain
