lyrics

We're going down to a place
Where the sun won't ever grace
The half empty bottles of Ketamine that neatly line the shelves
Don't look away
That is to say your eyes are yours still for today
But come tomorrow they'll be sitting in a jar upon my bedside table

Keep going down
Who would've known
That to draw outside the lines
Would leave me so hard to define
For men in white coats who never had the fucking time
It's no acute disorder
Girl, you're drop dead gorgeous
When you're strapped down tight upon my table under fluro lights

As she falls to the floor
She thinks about the ones she has to live for
The ones who'll identify her remains
And anytime, and anywhere she could've been but here
Well fate chose not to let this wait
So serve her on a dinner plate

And scream your little lungs out
No one can hear you anymore
The tears of horror
I adore your insides, can't you see?
I'm mastering anatomy
Practice is the key
Self-taught surgery
I can justify
Severed skin, severed ties
Bone-saw lullaby
You'll beg me to let you die

Taking all that she has,
Watching, waiting, dying for that moment
A fleeting glance, a final chance to act
The time is now to end the slaughter trend
Her hand falls on the hope of steel
And turns it on the one who deals

For every gleam in your eye and every stain on your knife
For every time you've gotten off while cutting into flesh and life
I will not second guess this, no, I will not show restraint,
And though you've taken my humanity,I am still humane

These scars will never mend
This night will never end

I'll wear a mask like you
A lie to see me through
I'll use the open wounds to bury all the pain inside me
