Lucy Dacus: VBS


Lucy Dacus - VBS (Karaoke) - Lyrics

In the summer of '07 I was sure I'd go to Heaven, but I was hedging my bets at VBS. A preacher in a t-shirt told me I could be a leader, taught me how to build a fire, and to spread the word. In the evening everybody went to worship and weep. Hands above our heads, reaching for God. Back in the cabin, snorting nutmeg in your bunk bed, you were waiting for a revelation of your own. Sedentary secrets like peach pits in your gut, locked away like jam jars in the cellar of your heart, waiting to be tasted and ultimately wasted. You were gonna win me over from the start.

Also, Read it


Your poetry was so bad, it took a lot to not laugh. You said that I showed you the light, but all it did, in the end, was make the dark feel darker than before. Your dad keeps his sleeves down through the summer for a reason. Your mother wears her makeup extra thick for a reason. When I tell you, you were born and you are here for a reason, you have not convinced the reason is a good one. While you're going to sleep your mind keeps you awake, and it makes your heartbeat fast and loud. There's nothing you can do, but the only thing you found: playing Slayer at full volume helps to drown it out. Your poetry was so bad, it took a lot to not laugh. You said that I showed you the light, but all it did, in the end, was make the dark feel darker than before. Dark feels darker than before. Dark feels darker than before.
