Contains themes of suicide,
Reader discretion is advised.

Mother take me back in your womb
Be the river I want to drown in
I want to be born again

Be the still of the water
That burns the filth as they seep through
Purify me mother, purify me

Mother don’t let me breathe
Keep me in
Let me sleep
Till your river turns black
Keep your heart still (mother)
I won’t move
I’ll make it easy for you

I’ll keep my eyes closed
Keep one hand beneath my head
The other on my chest
When I’m light
Set me a-sail

Wait for me mother
I’ll come back
For when I do
I’ll be born a-new
