Vein fed, rain wed

I saw a wife unwed
She held her baby's breath
Cold summer red
In warm three quarter beds
We sold our daughters for rent
She wrote letters we never read
We spent all the money we saved for a son
I'd keep it if we didn't marry so young

So I keep them away
But we tithed a rolled up dollar in a golden ashtray
Now I lie when I pray and when I say
The difference between you and me
Is there's no one missing from my family tree

Atleast that's what I tell myself
And that nobody else should know the things I know
Or what I might see

We fight like we sing
Angel vs. angel
Never on the same key
We lie like we dream
On our backs, trying to sleep
Like it doesn't mean anything

So I keep them away
But we tithed a rolled up dollar in a golden ashtray
Now I lie when I pray and when I say
The difference between you and me is lying with you comes so easily

Vein fed, rain wed

We sold our daughters for rent
All of our money is spent
We sink and recoil
We cash out and spoil
We almost played it off so well

I watched a wife unwed
She held her baby's breath
My feet dried in pavement
Put up the down payment
Again and again
