i wasn’t more even nine
couldn’t help myself
when I found that rusty knife
had to pry open that shell
heard her voice in my head
keep your hands to yourself
though i was very young
i said to hell, to hell with that

i crawled along the dirt floor
i opened up the blossom of my young nerve
though i was only ten i couldn’t have been prepared for what i saw
i saw i saw i saw

it was salty and old
with little hangers on
somewhat rough to the touch
it’s outer bone was cold
then i heard it sing
at least i thought it was a song
but when i looked into its mouth
i knew that i was wrong

i never spoke if it before
in theses past three years
i put my secrets in my bottom drawer
and i left them there
and i said my prayers
almost every night
i was naïve enough to think
that my secrets were mine
