Black eyes, you see
I’m teething, like a newborn
Follow a trail of bread crumbs
Bear witness for me
Sister’s improvement
My brother left tied to the mast of a ship
Senator, you’ll tell us
We’re dying everywhere if you look hard enough for it
In the belly of a whale, a coffin or jail
Look what they had us believing
Look what they had us believing

Black eyes, you see
I must say, it’s tempting
You talk to me as if I were
Sleeping in your lap, or in your womb
A belly full of warm milk and sedative
A diamond ring in a bear trap
Waiting for someone else just to reach for it
In the belly of a whale, a coffin or jail
Look what they had us believing
Look what they had us believing

Black eyes, I beg you
Don’t walk on eggshells
The ballots are all still full of holes
You make such a grand example of
A belly full of life, when I’m barely full of life
A belly full of life, when I’m barely full of life

When I’m barely full of life
