I’m Not Making Teapots

By ThelonesomeKid
all lyrics by gretchen seichrist 2017 copyright ThelonesomeKid album The Last Days Of Sugar


I’m not making teapots
I’m trying to talk to you through an alcohol phone
baby i’ve been humbled right down to my chicken skin
and even then you wouldn’t let me in

it still wasn’t low enough

no matter what you say the morning came anyway
there I was again vacuuming the dust
I’m not making this shit up

baby I’ve been acting so small
with my hand rummaging the present box
for a little extra credit and card of love
but the morning came anyway
no matter what you did or didn’t say
and baby there I was shirt caked with fake blood
and bruises rolled in a little tin can
and I’m not making this shit up
no siree no siree baby

I’m not making teapots
I’m trying to talk to you through and alcohol phone
there must be something beautiful around here
a pile of dirty white feathers and ropes tied to stones
yeah I know I am all alone
yeah I know that I am all alone
and I’m not making teapots
I’m trying to get someone sober enough
to hold the alcohol phone

there’s a woman who makes beautiful things
from crack pipes and vials
and she’s holding the first necklace
made from animal bones
in humility styles that come and go

I’m not making teapots
no siree no siree
I’m trying to talk to you through an alcohol phone
yeah I know I’m all alone
yeah I know I’m all alone
