What you found so upset you
Never saw it coming did you
Its easy to be surprised
With both your eyes sewn closed

Handled with great precision
Another faultless execution
Youre the subject of this exhibition
A willing cadaver, a willing cadaver

Scalped, saturated, made whole again

These cutes are leaving creases
Trace the scars, fit the pieces
Tell you're story, you don't need to say a word

Call off the cavalry
Cant save a wretch like me

If you can't leave it be, might as well make it bleed

Scalped, saturated, made whole again

You look better when out of sight
You were not made to fire right
There's something better wrong with you

Your pulse is anemic, you're tired of the fire
Youre bruising too easily, and falling behind
And no one is waiting for you
And no one is waiting for you

And no one is waiting for you
And no one is waiting
And no one is waiting for you
For you, for you

Call off the quarantine
Cant save the rest for me
Clean this with kerosene
If you can't leave it be, might as well make it bleed

Scalped, saturated, made whole again

Your wires are frayed, can't fire right
You look better when out of sight
You were not made to stand a fight
There's something better wrong with you

Your wires are frayed, can't fire right
You look better when out of sight
You were not made to stand a fight
There's something b
