The spoken word portions of this song are excerpts from the poem "Under the Flutter-Field" promptly written after experiencing Ann Hamilton's exhibition "the Event of a Thread" at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC. The rest of the lyrics are the telling of a true story.
i caught you cutting your skin too confused to see the state you were in
washington, oregon, california, michigan
kerry lit a candle hung it 'round her head too many too many too many dead
wash it in wash it out pack yourself and leave michigan
the blood fell it stained all your clothes while your family was sleeping your eyes never closed
and i saw and i saw and i saw it all from new york
i saw you wander home without any love you gave it all to the boys in the bar
seems we all have that place that we hate
i like it here
with you, can i stay?
