I wrote unfriendly things, truly cruel, on the day that you were born
To prove that words cannot touch beauty but I was torn
I put it off, I put it off, I put it off again

I made degenerate art for the religious right on the day that you were born
I had a passion to experiment but I was torn
I put it off, I put it off, I put it off again

I played Love Tara by Eric's Trip on the day that you were born
I had to find the cuteness in the unadorned but I was torn
I put it off, I put if off, I put it off again
I put it on, I put it on, I put it on again
