lyrics

I've always been your coffee table
Shit I've seen some things
Heard words I can't repeat
I'm mute, I'm rimu, I'm loyal

When you were three you fell
And hit your head against my corner
I absorbed some of your blood
That's when I knew I loved you

This place is haunted
Where they discard us
Our bones disjointed
This washing machine fell on me
At night it screams its owner's name

When you moved your things out
You took me with you
That's when I knew
You really loved me too

They hurt, those cigarette butts
When they were still alight
And they were still alight
But I forgave you

I wore my wounds well
All my brown beer bottle rings
When you spilled beer on me
Felt like I was at your parties too

That time you made love on me
I pretended you were fucking me
I strained under the weight of it
My legs were splayed, they have been since

I was glad when those years ended
We moved into that house alone
Just you and I, TV remotes
Your maddening self but I was with you

This place is haunted
Where they discard us
Our bones disjointed
This washing machine fell on me
At night it screams its owner's name

Then that bitch moved in
She said I was unstable
She never knew what we'd been through
She was never good enough for you

When she left I was elated
She brought that other woman back home
I held on to her cellphone
For you to find when you came home

I yelled with you
I screamed with you
Then you had that heart attack
Stretched over me like that
I was glad we finished up that way
I held you 'til they took you away

This place is haunted
Where they discard us
Our bones disjointed
This washing machine fell on me
At night we scream our owner's names
