This song is by Anathallo and appears on the album Canopy Glow (2008).

You were baptized by a dollop from a cool whip bowl

Sulfur water, holy water from the drinking fountain of the high school cafetorium
Among the great cloud when Margie whispered "Amen"
Bulletins slapped back at the heat to move the moist dead air

And Jack says that the body of love
And the hearts thereof can be baptized in the beads of their own sweat
Salt rings like the outlined shroud on the tomb of your skin

The crucifix cut from Styrofoam swung flung over your shoulder
Raining golden glitter from the glue-gun border
We thought about the easy yoke
My mind, my heart, choked
