"Birth" as written by and Marc Streitenfeld....
In the beginning there was semen,
In a deep mound of flesh,
And a crest that traveled,
On a wave of their own mess.

Through a tunnel of mucus,
And onto a vault,
With tourists and traffic,
I just paced myself.

Not I as my whole self,
Just the half that I had,
Before greeting the rest,
Of my better half.

A connection was made,
Through the shared love of science,
And vows were taken,
A seat was hired.

A cavern of fluid,
Brought shape to my hide,
In the months that remain,
To the time of my life.

Add flash for the reason,
Was spilling from the crack,
To the palms of the doctor,
To a towel full of scraps.

My brains wouldn't fit,
Through organ sex,
An incision was made,
With a scalpel and mess.

I should have noticed the beauty,
And not how it hurt,
Wet like a cherry,
In the bloodbath of birth.

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is obvious...it's about birth.

    So great.

    General CommentWell technically it's not about birth as she has a C section. The part of the song that I can't really figure out is the very end.

    i should have noticed the beauty
    and not how it hurt
    wet like a cherry
    in a bloodbath of birth

    Though as I'm thinking about it, it's probably about the child covered in birth fluids after being removed from the mother.

    General CommentIt seems like a more "darker" side of birth.. how everyone makes birth seem to be a very happy thing to happen or how having babies is a good thing. LOL.. not saying that it's exactly BAD.. but they never really describe how much they really go through with it.

    General Commentat first i didn't like this song that well. but after seeing them preform it, with the slide show with images of babies, etc. and how it was the first song they preformed (birth of a new era?), i really like it now.

    General Commentgood song.

    i think the part about the incision is a reference to an episiotomy (slicing open the perineum) which is done so that a baby will fit through the "organ of sex".

    General CommentI like this song the best out of all their songs. The simplicity makes it quite disturbing.... and how they arrange the music just adds to it. Once you think about it, its something we're used to hearing. But the way they made the song just makes it quite grim. Ironic, huh?
