When you died, I heard the
cries in the night of your soul
leaving the deformed flesh that shamed your mind.

All of those years your bones wept,
but now there is no skin left;
the worms have eaten it, you’re free to go.
And I will take your bones,
and with them build a home, home.

Burdened at birth inside of a face no mother could love;
she let them shame you like an animal.
They broke your limbs and beat in your swollen head ‘til
your neck shattered to pieces they put in the ground.

And I will take your bones,
and with them build a home, home.

Gooble gobble, gooble gobble,
we accept you, we accept you -
one of us.
Gooble gobble, gooble gobble,
we accept you, we accept you -
one of us.
Gooble gobble, gooble gobble,
we accept you, we accept you -
one of us.

I hear your soft bones crying,
I hear your soft bones crying,
I hear your soft bones crying
in the night.

[“I am not an animal! I am not an animal! I am a human being!”]
