Yeah
Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins
One for each of us and our sins

So you lay us in a line
Push your pins
They make us humble
Only you can tell in time
If we fall or merely stumble

But tell me
Can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?

Tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me

Yeah
Mirror, mirror upon thy wall
Break this spell or become the doll

See you sharpening the pins
So the holes will remind us
We're just the toys in the hands of another
And in time the needles turn from shine to rust

But tell me
Can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?

Tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
Jab it...

Here come the pins...

(Kirk slide solo)

Blood for face
Sweat for dirt
Three X's for the stone

To break this curse
A ritual's due
I believe I'm not alone

Shell of shotgun
Pint of gin
Numb us up to shield the pins

Renew our faith
Which way we can
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love
To fall in love
To fall in love with life again

So tell me
Can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?

Yeah, tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me, yeah!

No more pins in me, yeah!
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more, no more
No, no, no...
