about

this song exists for (and thanks to) my father.



"you were not an afterthought
i loved you at the beginning
& you are not an empty pot
you're a broken jug

you, a slave
becoming brave
& throwing yoke

you could try to bury me alive but my father invented the sun, i know
liquor burn, and houses never learn until everything burns to the ground

i am not the juggernaut you thought i was
jealousy: the best of me when you were drunk

we're drowned, ah lost & then we're found oh my father invented the sea for me
and you"
