written by rob lamothe


cleaned up my mind today
threw out all the things
i hardly ever say
won't need the line about
the hole in my pocket
no one believed it anyway

give you my secret words
give me a promise
to remember them for me
poems and pictures
and a letter to my daughter
every stupid thing i know to keep me clean

show you my hiding place
i am not afraid to
let you know i bleed
and if you stick me
you will let the air out of me
maybe that will make me clean

i want to climb into your mouth
inside your belly don't spit me out
i'm just a dog out in the rain
too tired to run, too dumb to stay


from being human, released January 1, 1998

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
