Squirt windex in my eyes, so that I may see more clearly

Pour lotion down my throat so that I may speak sincerely

Scrape all the  meat off of my bones, so people will believe me

But please leave the clothes on my back so people will believe me.

Trample me with raging horses, strip the flesh right off my face

Stab me in the back with swords so that I may feel safe.

The salt is in my wound, thank you sir give me some more

I'm feeling like a lead balloon which sits here on this floor.

I thank you all for coming, but put the balls and chains away

The door is to your left my friend, but I hope that you can stay.

I appreciate your empathy, I promise i'll return it

I promise you i'll lie to you, i'm tired of your shit.
