lyrics

I just woke up in the water
As it began to boil
Fell asleep getting baptized
Spent too long in the soil

With the worms and I've learned
That the dirt in my nails
Shouldn't be confused with pride
'Cause if I want to know God
Or some idea of
I'll have to wait until I die

And not just inside

Gertrude Stein said
A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
If that's true then
I hate myself for hating myself for hating myself for hating myself

Coulda been in that bathroom
On that long hungover drive
My eyes were burnt out and bleeding
And branded open wide

And I blurted out lies
And I blurred wrong and right
It's all a tattered binary
Some loud sadness it seemed
Not so buried beneath
That I confused with being free

But it ain't me, babe

Gertrude Stein said
A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
If that's true then
I hate myself for hating myself for hating myself for hating myself

Play that pessimist pop
Feel the weight lifted off
But I still need to be grounded
And now I'm finally sure
I'm not a kid anymore
But that does not mean I'm not dumbfounded
There's still some truths I haven't found yet
I want to be surrounded

Gertrude Stein said
A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
If that's true then
I hate myself for hating myself for hating myself for hating myself
