I think of you
Floatin' in there
And all the shit I thought I carry away from it will be
Floatin' inside the stomach of my baby
Little fetus waitin' to meet us
With your first swallow of air
All alone suckin' up all the worlds dispair

I phene for more
I phene for the core
A long way back down
Drown me in the sound
I found it beneath the junk
Just a punk who's sunk in too deep
I weep for me
For everyone who is and will never be

Yeah yeah yeah(...)

Never gave God much consider or thought
I fought that grip that he never caught
But the soul is something I couldn't help but feel
It's risen rain that wets
Especially the fur that pets
If you own the cat
And I believe in portion
And I kill you easy one abortion

Foundation I must die of life
Kiss me like a knife
Am I dead now God
Am I dead now wife

yeah yeah yeah(...)

And I think of you
Floatin' in there
Not a shread a thought a care
Where your from or will be
Swimin' inside the stomach of my baby
Little fetus waitin' to meet us

You were born in my head
Every time I hear my fear
Every tear of my sad eye will drip
Every drop that runs past my lips
For every thought
How good, that your death now benefits me

How could it benefit me
It benefits me (x3)

    General CommentI think of you floating in there
    With not a shred of thought or care
    of where you’re from or will be
    Swimming inside the stomach of my baby
    Oh little fetus waiting to meet us
    with your first swallow of air
    Hollow lung sucking up all the world’s despair
    I fiend for more, I fiend for the core
    Oh lore me back down
    and down in that sound
    I found it beneath the junk
    Just a punk who’s sunk in too deep
    I weep for me
    For everyone who is and will never be

    Hey yeah yeah

    I never gave god much consider or thought
    I fought that grip that he never caught
    But the soul is something I couldn’t help but feel
    It’s as real as the rain that wets
    Fresh as the fur on our pets
    You’re the only God and I believe in portion
    And I’ll kill easy in one abortion
    Foundation of my stife life, kiss me like a knife
    With my dead God now and my dead now wife

    And I think of you floating in there
    and not a shred of through or care
    of where you’re from or will be
    Swimming inside the stomach of my baby
    Little fetus went to meet us

    You’re reborn in my head
    Every time I hear my fear
    Every tear my sad eye will drip
    Every drop that runs past my lip
    For every thought of good
    that your death now benefits me
    How could it benefit me?
    Yeah, it benefits me

    General CommentMy favorite Pagoda fan without doubt. I especially love the part after "I found it beneath the junk".

    I'm a bit puzzled by the lyrics, though. The "I think of you" verses seem to be about the fetus inside his baby's stomach, ie pregnant girlfriend;

    I'm guessing - girlfriend says she's pregnant, he thinks that all the shit he carries will also be in the baby, but the thought of a baby alone is sucking the dispair out of the world for him. Then, I think she got an abortion. Even though they could feel the soul inside the stomach, they killed the fetus. And somehow it benefits him.

    Yeah, I'm probably way off. For all I know, fetus might be some wild metaphor for something else.

    General CommentHe's saying it doesn't benefit him.
    "How could it benefit me?.. it benefits me, it benefits me.." and at the end it actually says, "It benefits you."

    Its guilt.

    General CommentThe lyrics posted by "trainsvsabus" are the right ones. I think it's about him feeling guilty about having an abortion (or his girlfriend having an abortion). Guilty not only because of killing the baby, but also for the death benefitting him. It's an amazing song.

    General CommentI think it's about how Michael Pitt being happy about the thought of being a father. But him and his girlfriend decided to abort. But in a way it benefits him. Because he's still young and he can still enjoy the time he has left of his youth. Or possible being able to continue his drug habits. (Dunno if he does drugs or not.

    Thats just what I think.
