Written for Day 4 of the July 2019 Fearless Songwriting Challenge - "Vague Circles". I was doing some freewriting on this prompt and the image of circling the drain came up. I ended up writing about poop and how we give ourselves away and flush it down the drain. This is my best attempt at a philosophical song about poop. You are made of me And what I eat Fill me up And seek release I feel the call Of the bathroom stall I let it slide I feel you fall Hear the plop As you drop I’m lighter now The pushing stops Wipe away what remains Give it to the water Circling the drain Round and round Speeding down Out of sight The sewer pipes Take me away from myself Wash my hands My dirty self For public health Out of sight The sewer pipes Take me away from myself
