lyrics

We bathed outside in a washtub
One day the Mormons came to pray
We ate our meals around a cable spool
One night the hearth tore my toe open

and there were fights
guns, blood and teeth
you both wore the scars
For the rest of your days
there were fights
guns, blood and teeth

Plastic cars on cinderblock
One day my sister ran away
I chewed through bone when the chicken was gone
One night the creek washed the bridge away

and there were fights
guns, blood and teeth
you both wore the scars
For the rest of your days
and there were fights
guns, blood and teeth
you both wore the scars
For the rest of your days
there were fights
guns, blood and teeth

It's hard to say
What we hit
When we tried to fly
But you can see its wounds
Plain as day when we stop trying

Mom and Dad never stopped drinking
One day Dad nearly killed us all
Two wheels in a ravine, driver’s door open
One night Mom drove us away
