With this cake
we’ll eat our meat.

With this cake
we’ll fold the laundry.

With this cake
we’ll brush our teeth.

With this cake
we’ll love each other.

With this cake
we’ll cry til dawn.

With this cake
we’ll resent our parents.

With this cake
we’ll accept our parents.

With this cake
we’ll be our parents.

With this cake
we’ll build black holes.

With this cake
we’ll eat our hearts out.

Eat our hearts out.
