Mr Wu's Pigs "Warmer Place" is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. Like, seriously. It might only come second to "Pretty (Ugly Before)" by Elliott Smith. Favorite track: Warmer Place.

Track Name: Heavy On My Mind
As a raindrop
is a storm cloud
As a kiss begets a child
As a seedling
is an oak tree
Small things weigh heavy on my mind

Under the ocean
there is a small thing
with the ocean inside
Under the blanket
there is no panic
just the moving tide

As a life is
as a hope is
Small things weigh heavy on my mind
As a love is
as a loss is
A failure is a death

Under the ocean
there is a small thing
with the ocean inside
Under the water
there is no order
just the moving tide

Under the ocean
there is a small thing
with the ocean inside
Under the blanket
the air is so frantic
with no place to hide.
Track Name: Warmer Place
I feel like I'm losing grip
One wrong step and I might slip
I used to have so much control
Over all the things I own
Now I realize they own me
And I'm stuck inside this big machine
And the world is just a trip we take
Filled with death and violence and hate

Send me to a warmer place
One where I can kiss a loving face
One where people love and care
One where I'm not lost and scared

This shit town has anchored me
And shielded me from all my dreams
It holds and sucks and fucks my heart
Til all that's left is pulled apart

Send me to a warmer place
One where I can kiss a loving face
One where people love and care
One where I'm not lost and scared

All that you are is not what I want
I'll leave this town still full of want
But I'll return with prizes and gold
And you'll still be here all sad and old

Send me to a warmer place
One where I can kiss a loving face
One where people love and care
One where I'm not lost and scared
Track Name: Too Afraid To Ask
Do you like me?
I'm too afraid to ask
We spent so much time
never saying much
Wordless struggles
a fight to resist touch
My urge is conscious
and won't be told to stop

I know, I know, I know, I know
I should speak up
I should say something
I know, I know, I know, I know
I should say it
I should say something soon

So, I'll see you in a few full moons

Speak up slowly
you don't have to push and shove
Say it softly
your glad I didn't give up
And cast out the doubt
I was ever good enough
Lay your hands on me
bless me with your touch

You know, you know, you know, you know
You should speak
You should say something
You know, you know, you know, you know
You should say it
You should say something soon

So, I'll see you in a few full moons

I'm too afraid to ask

So, I'll see you in a few full moons.
Track Name: This House Was A Home
This house was a home but something has gone
even the pictures look sad
And the cats just groan at the food in their bowls
coz the hearts of stone won't budge
Those passive ticks with aggressive kicks
don't make much of a glue
I'm losing hope on this tight rope
I might just pack my clothes

It's not long
'Til I'll be gone
But I'll be crying soon
Saying mama can you help me move away from home?

The ghosts in the walls see all our flaws
and they must be laughing at us
At all our silly ways and our ameature dramatic plays
they must think we're so fucking dumb

And, I don't mean to be a pain but I see no other way
I might have to go get gone
Without a loving spouse I can still play house
even if it's on my own

That stitch in time
Didn't materialize
So I'm on to to something new
So mama can you help me move away from home?

I won't be back for a while.....
Track Name: Punishment
What did I choose here?
What have I done?
Stolen the trust for selfish love?
It's not a game there to be won

How can I hurt you
when all I want
is to carry your burden
and set free your heart?

There's danger upon us
Punishment comes
We broke all the rules
laid down by gods
Swallowed the fruit
that shame has hung

We tried to hide
Hide from our lie
I'm sorry my love
I'm sorry my love

I'm not the same
We're not the same...now
I'm not the same
We're not same
It's not a game now

Now that we're fallen
Now that we're one
We're set free from ties
that bind us down
Cut loose we view
the nothingness

No longer the abbess
this vainglorious idol
Will now carry this burden
And descend with the prize

The penance engulfs us
but cleanses our souls
The brush of your flesh
all over me
If this is the end
it's victory

We tried to hide
Hide from our lie
I'm sorry my love
I'm sorry my love

I'm not the same
We're not the same...now
I'm not the same
We're not same
It's not a game now
