Artifex Pereo – The Baker Act lyrics
This hole in my head is complicating
When it comes to retaining your name
I feel the thought dripping down my neck
I need the doctor. I need the medicine
The face of my friend is beginning to blur again

Dance with me, with lack of identity, my precious little girl
Hold on to the value of memory while your father's brain boils

My body is a hollow vessel
My eyes are starving mouths to feed
What would it take to get a taste of the meat
That hangs from the neck of every person I see?
You, in particular, I hang off every word
Until it drips out of my head again
I feel dementia kicking in
What did you say your name was?

Run from me before I know the difference
Tomorrow will you be my daughter, draped in a different dress
Your poison is the scent that saturates the air
Grab your clothes and head for the back door
Before the devil knows you were here

It's been you all along, you conniving little slut
Where did you come from?
I will write you down, I will carve you into my skin
I'll tell the guards, not to let you in
I'll tell the guards, not to let you in


The stain on my lip matches your cigarette (x2)
