lyrics

Stitch another wing onto its back,
I hope it knows how to fly,
Open up its guts, toss a couple stomachs in
And close her up.

I got a feeling this'll have
A better chance than the last one,
Gimme all the scraps, even though you
Know how I hate underdogs,
'Cus I don't want to see this go to waste.

Maybe didn't count on someone else
To kiss your bruises away,
Now you're on your own, working on contortion,
It's not going well.

I saw you in the corner of my eye,
Bending backwards and panting,
Wouldn't it be nice, if only you could snip a wire
And fix yourself?
'Cus sometimes people need a change of pace.
And baby, I know just what needs replacement
If you give me a minute.

It's alive!

Everybody wants what they can't have,
It makes you fidget and itch,
How to keep your cool, living in a
Corner of a bigger room.

And you don't even know where you belong,
But I can help you with this,
Come and fall asleep, and you won't even
Recognize yourself.

Step from rock to rock so cautious,
Lead your lively love across this
Undertowing flow with all these
Bubbles from the bottom,
So you step from rock to rock with both your
Eyes fixed on your feet.
But he's gone like the other ones.
