John Kaskie This is the 1st record I've ever heard that makes me feel like maybe I'm not the saddest person on the planet after all. I always say theres a bottomless pit inside me that even god itself could not mend or find the bottom of.....Now I have something beautiful to listen to while I do the backstroke in the still black murky bottomless void inside myself. Thank you Nicole Dollanganger Favorite track: Heart Shaped Bed.

Uncle 05:40
I wake up and I creep Down the hall to your feet Where I lay like a dog for you In Silk down to my knees Wet with spit, red with need Three fingers in you go deep Reach inside me, please hide me Somewhere they will never find me I will always come to you When I’m weak and empty With my wedding night blues When I need you to fill me Like you do I wake up and I creep Down the hall to your feet Love he gives that I don’t need Grind it to dust with my teeth Rose and Neptune, in the blue moon All the darkness goes into you When we’re lost in the Holy bedroom When I feel you inside but I still need you

Tammy Faye 03:28
You know how I get With my Tammy Faye eyes Crying, I’m a mess Half undressed in the light of the TV You know you’ll just have to go bury this In the garden and leave it till there’s nothing left For me to find, when I try to dig it up And bring it back to life ‘Cause you know how I get I love you so madly like Sadie Mae But I’m just a crazy bitch Crying in the kitchen to Tammy Wynette But it’s just how I get With my Tammy Faye eyes Blood on my clothes and my hands I’ve done it again You know you’ll just have to go bury this In the garden and leave it till there’s nothing left For me to find, when I try to dig it up And bring it back to life ‘Cause you know how I get I love you so madly like Sadie Mae But I’m just a crazy bitch Crying in the kitchen to Tammy Wynette ‘Cause I shoot the gun any chance I get With blood on my clothes and my hands I’ve done it again

Lemonade 04:18
I’ve been home all day My husband’s gone, they all say He’s got a girl on the side While I stay home all day So I make lemonade Put on a dress and I go lay Out in the day room And I wait for you To come on over And it give it to me In the backyard full of dying flowers In the kitchen on the pale pink counter Give you a lap dance outside in a lawn chair Drinking lemonade and playing with my hair I’ve been home all day My husband’s gone, don’t need to worry Take you upstairs to the swan bed Let you fuck me hard as you can The next time he kisses me Want him to taste red ruby lips And the love we made And the lemonade So come on over And give it to me In the backyard full of dying flowers In the kitchen on the pale pink counter Give you a lap dance outside in a lawn chair Drinking lemonade and playing with my hair

My Baby 02:36
My baby wears all black Says he’s gonna make a hearse Out of this Cadillac Says I’m gonna put him in An early grave with all the Trouble that I make him My baby says he loves me but I know He don’t care if he kills us both My baby wears all black Says that we both die inside Every dream he has He says he’s seen us on the road The car was smoking and I was Trying to pull the teeth from His throat My baby says he loves me but I know He don’t care if he kills us both

Lay me down on a heart shaped bed Pretend it’s our wedding, pretend we just met Pretend we’re in one of those movies They rent in the back of every seedy place We pass on the interstate The signs say Heaven Waits On The Other Side… Just hold me through these lonely nights We’ll have a blue wedding tonight So get the room with the heart shaped bed Make something gross feel romantic Make me so no one will ever want me again ‘Cause when I slept with faith, I only Found a corpse in my arms on awakening Just hold me through these lonely nights We’ll have a blue wedding tonight
