Mitski - Crack Baby

Down empty streets sniffing glue me and you
Blank open eyes watch the moonflower bloom
It's been a long hard twenty-year summer vacation
All these twenty years trying to fill the void

Crack baby you don't know what you want
But you know that you had it once
And you know that you want it back
Crack baby you don't know what you want
But you know that you're needing it
And you know that you need it bad
With wild horses running through your hollow bones
Wild horses running through your hollow bones

Went to your room thinking maybe you'll feel something
But all I saw was your burning body waiting
All these twenty years on a vacation

Crack baby you don't know what you want
But you know that you had it once
And you know that you want it back
Crack baby you don't know what you want
But you know that you're needing it
And you know that you need it bad
Crack baby you don't know what you want
But you know that you want it
Yeah you know that you want it
You know that you
Crack baby you don't know what you want
But you know that you need it
And you know that you need it bad
With wild horses running through your hollow bones
Wild horses running through your hollow bones
Wild horses running through your hollow bones
Wild horses running through your hollow bones

Crack Baby is the tenth song from Mitski’s third album Puberty 2. It talks about a longing feeling you have never felt but, “you know that you had it once”. a feeling similar to déjà vu. A crack baby is a child that is born addicted to crack, giving the child a disease called Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (or NAS), because the mother had an addiction to crack. The baby starts to suffer from withdrawals without ever having had crack, and it starts to want it even though it’d never had it before. Mitski talks about this feeling as her chasing love, and happiness.
