I know you must know it now
My organs have stoned
My fingers are numb around
Your warm, pulsing throat
And I whispered, "My wife,"
She opens her pale eyes
She smiled, so I smiled
And I got what I deserved

This house was my flowered heart
But my petals have fallen
Do you love him, tell me now,
Or I'll show you my scars
And you will bow boldly
And tell me you're sorry
But you're hardly moving
Wake up and give me what I know I deserve

Farmer's wife heard it from the street down below
And later fully recalled each harrowing note
And she will cry,
"Holy Spirit has cursed me."
And for this my ending sooner than I deserved"

The children were lucky to have only used ears
As I stood on top of him looking down,
I felt the fear in their skin they plead,
"Father, did you kill our leader?
Our rock and great teacher?
What did he deserve?"
And I replied,
"No, killed my leeches.
And the wound that has freed us.
I hope you can see it
for what I deserve."

The judge would ask, "Why again, was it him and not her?"
The only response I could think was, "To settle my nerves."
And try killing my leeches for sucking me speechless
abandoning secrets and trust all the same
So I deserve what I deserve
So I deserve what I deserve

Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh

    General Comment"The children WERE lucky to have only used ears." This implies that the children only heard the crime and didn't see it, which makes more sense in context.

    General CommentHe repeats the word "deserve" I feel Andi is saying that really, we deserve nothing. The Sailor in his insanity, feels he "deserves" to murder, to feel happy.

    Story wise, in the story, The Sailor has finally returned from sea and murders his brother, with his wife and kids watching.

    General CommentI think the second line is "my organs have stoned", which would make more sense... as in his heart. I also have no clue on the "wound" line, no matter how many times I listen to it... hope someone can figure that out! I am literally in emotional angst awaiting this third and final chapter.... when, oh, when, Andy???

    Lyric CorrectionThere will be little changes here and there from whatever version this is from, to he current release of it. For example...

    Line 2-
    "my ORGANS? have stoned"

    Also in the first verse, some things have changed to present tense-
    "And I WHISPER, "My wife,"/She OPENS her pale eyes"

    Later in the second verse-
    "...each harrowing note./AND SHE WILL CRY/Holy Spirit cursed me/For this my ending sooner THAN I DESERVE"

    And in the last verse-
    "The only RESPONSE I could think was..."

    General CommentDon't know if he included lyrics with the physical album, but this is what I hear on the non-demo version:



    I know you must know it now, my organs have stoned
    My fingers are numb around your warm, pulsing throat.
    And I whisper, “My wife.”
    She opens her pale eyes.
    She smiled so I smiled and I got what I deserved.

    This house was my floured hear, my petals have fallen
    Do you love him, tell me now or I’ll show you my scars
    And you will bow boldly
    And tell me your sorry
    But you’re hardly moving, wake up and give me what I know I deserve

    The farmer’s wife heard it from the street down below
    And later fully recalled each harrowing note
    And she would cry, “Holy spirit has cursed me.
    And for this my ending, sooner that I deserve."

    The children weren’t lucky to have only used ears
    As I stood on top of him looking down, I felt the fear in their skin.
    They plead, “Father,
    Did you kill our leader?
    Our rock and great teacher, what did he deserve?”
    And I replied, “No, killed my leeches
    And the wound that has freed us.
    I hope you can see it for what I deserve.”

    The judge would ask, “Why, again, was it him and not her?”
    The only response I could think was to ‘settle my nerve’
    And try killing my leeches for sucking me speechless
    Abandoning secrets and trust all the same.
    So I deserve what I deserve.
    I deserve what I deserve.
