about

Envelope tells a morbid story of a person wanting to be with the one they love so much, that they're willing to carve out their eyes, shave off their heels, and make them a quilt from their own skin. It was originally written in the Spring of 2007. After 10 years, the song is finally seeing the light of day!

Track Name: Envelope
I'm so pathetic
I carved out my two eyes
Put them in an envelope
Stamped it, and sent them as a surpise

You complained that your feet hurt
so I shaved off my heels
Shoved them in the envelope
and licked to bond the seal

I stole your tweezers
and plucked off all my skin
I tried to make you a quilt
but I didn't know where to begin

The open air caused my bones to splinter
So I buried myself in the snow
and stuck it out through the winter

So here I sit with the cold icing up my blood
I can't wait for the Spring when I'll turn into a flood
I'll be processed, churned, and carbonated too
Bottled up and shipped out
and I'll be back with you
