my mom lyrics – kimya dawson

“my mom”

have you ever had a dream that your favourite baby’s drowning
and you grab him by his sweater sleeve, pull him up on to the ground
and you can hear the water slosh around inside his tiny gut
push his belly up and down but he can’t cough the water up
suddenly a flood comes out his mouth till there is nothing left
inside of him, he’s empty now, there isn’t even one small breath

and he goes limp in your arms
all the people’s mouths are moving, all you hear are car alarms
and you wake up and start to cry
i will lose my sh*t if even one more person i know dies
so please don’t die

my mom’s sick she’s in a hospital bed
i’ve got a word for all you ghosts in her head
and all you skeletons in her closet
leave her alone, leave her alone, leave her alone, please

because my mom needs you gone, my mom needs you gone
as long as she is haunted she’ll never get strong
my mom needs you gone

you traded all your paperclips for a soap dish, that way
your best friend’s rubber ducky wouldn’t slip and slide away
but he traded his rubber duck for a cigar box to place
your paperclips in, mr. hooper came to say

oh my dear friends bert and ernie
here’s a little something for each of you from me
here are your paperclips and here’s your rubber ducky
how could i ignore such selfless generosity?

the human body’s made up of good and bad bacteria
but the antibiotics and the antibacterials are killing all the good ones
and the bad ones just get stronger and become super infections
it’s harder to destroy them and it’s harder to detect them
and there’s something in her blood, and there’s something in her leg,
and there’s something in her brain

my mom’s sick she’s in a hospital bed
i’ve got a word for all you ghosts in her head
and all you skeletons in her closet
leave her alone, leave her alone, leave her alone, leave her alone
leave her alone, leave her alone, leave her alone please
because my mom needs you gone, my mom needs you gone
as long as she is haunted she’ll never get strong
my mom needs you gone
my mom needs you gone
my mom needs you gone
my mom needs you gone
my mom needs you gone
