Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath

Angie Aparo

 

VERSE 1

It's such a drag when you're hosting a parasite

In the vicinity of your mind

Sylvia I love you

Father since you left

The world's a foreign land

I'll never talk to God again

I'm busy hosting a parasite

 

VERSE 2

It's such a drag when you're hosting a parasite

With the virginity of your mind

Mother left instructions

Sleeping on your stomach

You feel your lungs rise

Reminds  you that you're alive

When you're hosting a parasite

 

CHORUS

La la la la…

I was lighter than air before you arrived

La la la la…

A multicellular organism cannot survive

La la la la….

I was lighter than air before you arrived

 

VERSE 3

It's such a drag, what a hag, that little parasite

Infecting the area of your mind

A poets little poison

A needle full of ink

A song inside a drink

I wonder who I think I am

When the parasites my only friend

 

CHORUS

La la la la…

I was lighter than air before you arrived

La la la la…

A multicellular organism cannot survive

La la la la….

I was lighter than air before you arrived

 

La la la la…

You never get it right 

Hosting a parasite

La la la la…

Oh what a drag my

Little parasite

La la la la…

You never get it right 

Hosting a parasite

 

BRIDGE

I was lighter than air before you arrived

I was lighter than air

 

Oh cavalry oh cavalry

Are you on the hillside

Cause I've been popping pill side

My manners or on the ill side

 

Oh cavalry oh cavalry

Can you bring back my pride

And maybe a little dynamite

I'm hosting a parasite
