[Chorus:]
Say I'm beautiful, oh, say I'm beautiful
It ain't perfection when you've got no soul
Painkillers on the doctor's table
Won't you give me back the heart
I know under the knife, under the knife
Carve my darkness, into light
Yeah, under the knife, under the knife, knife, knife, knife

Cut me up and I won't bleed anymore
I will follow, watch in heaven
I pray that one day I will be a better person
I need deliverance, but is it worth it
Cause somewhere in the bible says that we're all sinners
Now far away from what I believe, the world is fade
And I'm with the sheep
So recreate me, and make me pure
Maybe I'll be half the man I was before

[Chorus:]
Say I'm beautiful, oh, say I'm beautiful
It ain't perfection when you've got no soul
Painkillers on the doctor's table
Won't you give me back the heart
I know under the knife, under the knife
Carve my darkness, into light
Yeah, under the knife, under the knife, knife, knife, knife

Plastic surgeon, don't change my face
Until the man inside deserve the same way
I'll be defined in serenity, I hope that's how the people will remember me
Cause it's coming quickly and it's going fast
Build your house on concrete and you're bound to last
Recreate me, with me whole
Under the knife, deep in my soul.
