I'm in the mood for some unscheduled affection
Spontaneous combustion,
I'm playing with my fire inside
Burning my inner child
Blackened his skin to the tint of his sweatshirt
Hey, when you play with the big boys, you get hurt
I used to suck my thumb while rubbing silk blankies across my cheek,
Until my mom denied me accessI bawled for weeks
we don't speak
To this day
I came to terms with my fear and loathing
Now I wear this clothing like it's an extra layer of old skin
Afraid to shed tears
In the fabric from years
that I've had it Found abandoned on the stairs to the attic
Collecting runaway skin cells, Absorbing memories
It's been to hell and back, dragged through the dirt and even worn by enemies
Born in the 70's of the 20th century
Making that distinction is for future reference in case y'all remember me
In my genesis
What's most important is to remember this:
Women and men are pissed
When they kiss they exchange spit that is venomous
Most of it is affection-less and the affects of this has us quick to clench a fist
Don't get fancy with your paintbrush when you reminisce
I'm sentimental and I miss what used to be close to me,
Or maybe I've just got OCD and I can't break my old routines
Hopefully I'll reconcile with my inseparables
What lies inside from head to toes,
Instead of symbolizing clothes
Identifying with outside symbols
Cut out the middle man
But my woobie is in demand
I'm feeling like a kid again

It protected me from the wind, sea and sand
Sanity was saved from the crazy cemetery walks and
Every awkward moment spent talking with the Boogie Man
Man managed unconditional comfort
Please, certain circumstances is abandoned as
I've come to understand
The monsters are under my bed again...
The monsters are under my bed again...

Dedicated to the memory of my Black Sweatshirt
