"Baby Shoes" as written by and John Andrew Hull....
Baby shoes, never used
Thought of you until it happened to us too
Jennifer, I have heard
You made it through, you finally moved
That's good for you

I'm a dog, I'm a bird
I'm a rat, and you're detached from all the words
I'm a dick, you're around
I am bound and terrified of making sounds

Satan's eyes, the surprise
Search inside and oh my god she's back alive
She is mean, she is harmed

She once belonged to us now belongs to the dark
She once belonged to us now belongs to the dark

She is gone, false alarm
Here we are and now I am growing out my arms
I can make, big mistakes
Evil comes, yeah it comes to me in ways

I'm a saint, sticky paint
Three sixes we can call her by her name
I'm a saint, sticky paint
Three sixes and we call her by her paint

I'm so lonely, feed me feed me
I'm so angry, pet me, pet me
I'm so lonely, kill me, kill me
She's so lonely, kill her through me

Here I come, down the hall
I've got a pretty fucking end to all in all
Hate the bars, I love the bars
At least I'm safe and you can't hurt me anymore

'Cause she is mean, mean and harmed
She once belonged to us but now to the dark
She once belonged to us now belongs to the dark

You and me, plucking feathers, and
You and me destroy the best of things
Sometimes I, can save the afterlife
And I am scared the apocalypse is three

She is mean, she can kill
She would do it just to have a simple thrill
She's a saint, sticky paint
Three sixes and they call me by her name

Three sixes and we call her by her name

    General CommentWould love to hear someone's interpretation of this song. definitely feels like the deepest of them all, and i honestly can't put my finger on it. hoping to ask them during their live acoustic performance today.

    Song MeaningFrom Andy Hull during a studio session with 104.5, a Philadelphia radio station: "It's a fictitious story (...) if it was me, say I'm the character. I have a kid and the kid dies and then I give the kid to Satan and Satan brings it back to life. But it's an apocalyptic baby so it tries to kill me and so I try and kill it and that lands me in prison and her out on the loose."

    Thought that was pretty interesting...this is my favorite song on the album.
