Where's my ladder gone?
I'm not climbing
Curse this paper shell
It's not helping

Keep it, keep it, keep it
I don't want you to call me any more
Cut it, cut it, cut it
Don't leave me danglin' any more

Look hard enough and you'll find
Your body's just like mine
Crippled in all the right places
And scarred at all the right times

Come one
Come all
Come on
And let's go
All the way back to the start

Fuck one
Fuck it all
Fuck on
And I want
Us to go back to the start

With all these lies
Can you taste it?
In your exclusion zone
I'm still naked

With all the shit you chew
I can't call you any more
I jump the steel for you
Not in a wonder any more

So when it comes out, you'll find
Your cruelty's just like mine
The city of dreadful night is
Where I exist in this light

Come one
Come all
Come on
And let's go
All the way back to the start

Fuck one
Fuck it all
Fuck on
And I want
Us to go back to the start

Come one
Come all
Come on
And let's go
All the way back to the start

Fuck one
Fuck it all
Fuck on
And I want
Us to go back to the start
