lyrics

my mother was
fourteen
when the doctors scared her
back to life
where would her organs go
if time had passed her by?

i woke up
at 4am
craving
cranberry juice
the heat trapped in the back of my throat won't go away
i subsist off of select colors of complimentary
saltwater taffy
make it last until the hotel staff finds me

i am a fortunate consequence
of a bad situation
i am a fortunate consequence
of a bad situation

and i know that i'm alive
i don't know why
well maybe i had died a long time ago
but i don't know

my mother's belly
full twice more
than there's
waking proof
the will to carry on was born inside us

my brother and i
played in
the brambles
that overran
our
backyard

and they're gone now
but we're still around
carrying our secrets like
whispers to the ground

i am a fortunate consequence
of a bad situation
i am a fortunate consequence
of a bad situation

and i know that i'm alive
i don't know why
well maybe i would have died a long time ago
but i'm still here
