about

Ever since I saw you on the tenement roof
I've been splitting up my head in search of proof
That there was ever a poet in my bed
Heaven in a flower, or in my head
But it's not, but you're not

Can't believe you sold every word that I had
It was written in the letters
Drove you all the way to the northwest corner
Just to make you better
But you won't move

Mother dead or dying
Released from ever trying
I float across the Dexedrine roofs
Crying, crying -- I'm trying

All of the things that I put into my veins
Rearranged the chemicals in my brain
I'm just like you now, Naomi
Reading the Kaddish out loud to Naomi

Track Name: Naomi
Ever since I saw you on the tenement roof
I've been splitting up my head in search of proof
That there was ever a poet in my bed
Heaven in a flower, or in my head
But it's not, but you're not

Can't believe you sold every word that I had
It was written in the letters
Drove you all the way to the northwest corner
Just to make you better
But you won't move

Mother dead or dying
Released from ever trying
I float across the Dexedrine roofs
Crying, crying -- I'm trying

All of the things that I put into my veins
Rearranged the chemicals in my brain
I'm just like you now, Naomi
Reading the Kaddish out loud to Naomi
