so she's crying and so she says to me
i've got bad news i'm having a baby
but there's nothing but dirt that i can see
so we're fucked cause we got nothing to eat

so for eight months we scrap and piss and pray
that this baby won't live a single day
and we barf, but i know it's the best way
cause we're fucked cause we got nothing to eat

please let me know you're my friend
forgive us the mistakes we've made
please let me know that you're down
cause this baby, this body will keep us

so we're starving, her tummy's bustin' out
and the flood comes to wash away the ground
the rush of water and fear is the only sound
cause we're fucked
cause we got nothing to eat

please let me know you're my friend
forgive us the mistakes we've made
please let me know that you're down
cause this baby, this body will keep us

it just died
i did not kill it
it just died
i did not kill it

    General CommentShe's pregnant, they can't afford a child. They know its terrible but they pray the baby will die. Eventually her water breaks, and the child is either born dead or some neglect of theirs kills it, but he swears the blame isn't his.

    General Commenti think also that if this child would be born, they would be 'stuck' in the famine, cementing their fate.

    and the last lines of 'it just died, i did not kill it' are definately bittersweet
