lyrics

Midgard (The Worms)

Words and Music by Juliet Wright


Verse 1:
I pass the old woman
With glasses walking
You’re on the right path she says
Keep on going, I am the Lord
This is one of my disguises

Prechorus:
In my dreams
I grabbed a
Swarm of matted flies
As I reached into my soul

Verse 2:
The guy with the weird eye is here
He watches me like a hawk
He sees the worms inside of me
As I try to run but walk

Prechorus:
He’s a mighty man
And you can’t do that
As he plays with the worms like pets
Just face them and you’ll be okay

Chorus:
But Midgard shows his face again
I sure don’t see him as my friend
I am surrounded there is no end
You’re help please send

And Midgard catches me again
I must dig deep to reach the end
I am obsessed I must transcend
Again

Verse 3:
Looking for my truth with him
In a cabin beside the road
Lots of people here trying
To help me ease my load

Prechorus:
A woman in pink
Her baby dropping things
Says
You have to keep on trying
Someday your soul will sing

Chorus:
But Midgard shows his face again
I sure don’t see him as my friend
I must dig deep to reach the end
My soul to mend.

And Midgard catches me again
I must dig deep to reach the end
I am obsessed I must transcend
Again

Bridge:
Out they come
My worms
They’re here
Blame, obsession,
Self-hate and fear
It’s time to weed this wormwood
From my fruitful brain

For years
Under your scrutiny
Your mind was wrapped
Around yourself
But now the child is here
And crying mutiny

Verse 4:
Lady with the glasses
Just looks at me
No longer knows what to say
The man with the weird eye
Has turned and finally walked away

Prechorus:
They’re bowing out
They’ve had enough
Of fruitless tries with me
They’ve set me free

Chorus:
And Midgard shows his face again
I sure don’t see him as my friend
I am surrounded
There is no end
You’re help you send

And Midgard follows me again
I must dig deep to reach the end
I am obsessed I must transcend
Again

He’s bearing down but I defend
My digging trains me to transcend
I kiss his face, he is my friend
My soul God mends.
My soul God mends.
My soul God mends.
My soul God mends. (repeat this on tag.)

Extra stuff:
Beneath my voice
Flowing less sweetly
Where these worms
Living inside me
Crawling, wiggling,
Infesting, polluting

Self doubt, blame, hatred, lust, fear
Inferiority
All my life I have made these a priority
These are my worms
Crawling out from behind every wall
Too powerful to be ignored.
