Burrow Your Way To My Heart

When you were a little girl you were stung by a wasp
And the skin on your arm puffed up and went red
Yet you so loved that wasp and all of his brothers that you
Brought the whole damn angry hive into your
Right into your bed

As a child you were riddled with ringworm
So your father cut them out of your skin
Then you felt so alone and remorseful
You tracked each little worm down and put them back in

Have you ever tried to neck with an earwig
Oh, your body is a home to your friends
You’ve a tick for each nipple and a leech for each finger
And a parasitic love that never ends

Do you have any love left for me
I’m small, but that’s a start
Eat me up with your love
Burrow your way to my heart
Do you have any love left for me
I’m small, that’s a start
Eat me up with your love, please
Burrow your way to my heart

The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets  The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets's website is dedicated to promoting the literature of H.P. Lovecraft, who wrote of lost cities, tainted genealogy, alien gods, and that fabled tome, The Necronomicon. The Thickets have a reputation for entrancing and inciting their live audiences with their melodic blend of energetic punk and rock, while wearing thrilling costumes that help bring their good-naturedly macabre songs to life. Quite often during the climax of their rock ‘n’ roll rituals a servitor of that Great Old One known as Cthulhu will be summoned and inevitably destroy the band. They’ve played with GWAR, They Might Be Giants, and Bad Brains at festivals like DragonCon, GenCon, the HP Lovecraft Film Festival, and of course, the Penny Arcade Expo. Their song “Shhh….” is available as a downloadable track for Harmonix’ Rock Band video game. Other tracks have appeared in video games like Sword of the Stars and Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 2. They wrote the award-winning role-playing game Spaceship Zero. Defeating The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets awards you 6000 Experience Points and a Vorpal Guitar of Rocking +3.
