Awakened, Red Faced
Drowning in a pit of despair
I lie on a table, about to be operated on
I showed up dead when the sky fell off
And the mystery was myself
But who the Hell would even care?
Pictures of a rafter tumbling over
Throwing ev'ry one in the water
We hit our heads on rocks
We were the risk takers that day
Wasn't worth all this
A stack of them on my palm
Up to the top of my neck
I never know what happens
When I swallow in a crazy daze
This idea that I don't know what is
Just a silly little packaged man I am
Can never understand the meaning
Face dripping now with blood
All the surgeons dead around the floor around me
Now who's gonna take this rock out of me?
