"The Gentle Preservation of Children's Minds" as written by and Brian R Canning Alex Church....
Remember when they used to make us
Wake up and spray all the blood from the flowers
It was so hot, in the afternoon
They told us that we couldn't stop until the garden bloomed

When we were finished, we heard the sirens scream
I shook your back and woke you up from someone else's dream
You were so lost underneath the weight
You turned into the type of person that you used to hate

Are you still mine
I hope you feel better this time

The gentle preservation of children's minds

Remember when we danced with your mother
She was so drunk in the living room
And then her profile, turned a certain way
Showed me how you would look thirty years from today

So come and talk to me in your language
With your glass eye and your wooden teeth
I think I know what's wrong I think I know what you're on
I think I know what they meant when they said you were gone

Are you still mine
I hope you feel better this time

The gentle preservation of children's minds
