about

This song in four words: DON'T MESS WITH ME.

lyrics

I'VE GOT A CRUTCH
INSIDE OF ME
SPLIT DOWN MY SPINE
LET IT SEE

WHY I
SNAP BONES
OH I
SUPPOSE

DARKNESS IT HIDES
LET'S CALL IT OUT
SLEDGEHAMMERED FACE
DISEMBODIED CLOUT

WHY I
AGREE
OH I
DO SEE

FRACTURED LIMBS
WATERED EYES
MUDDLED BLOOD
FROM INSIDE
SIDEWAYS NOSE
HALF-BENT EAR
CROOKED NECK
MY VENEER

THESE PANGS THAT STING
I RIPPED THEM OUT
PUMP ON THE FLOOR
WRITE ABOUT

WHY I
BELIEVE
OH I
DECIEVE

A POOL OF WET
CLINGS TO YOUR BROW
HANDS CRY OUT
SOBS LACK SOUND

WHY I
DO BREATHE
OH I'M
RELIEVED

I WANTED NOTHING MORE
BUT YOU PUSHED ME THROUGH THAT DOOR
I WANTED NOTHING MORE
BUT YOU PUSHED AND YOU PUSHED AND YOU PUSHED

FRACTURED LIMBS
WATERED EYES
MUDDLED BLOOD
FROM INSIDE
SIDEWAYS NOSE
HALF-BENT EAR
CROOKED NECK
MY VENEER

SHE FELL INTO THE WATER
SHE'S NOT COMING UP
SHE FELL INTO THE WATER
SHE'S NOT COMING UP

These vast efforts are repaid by the audience with growing fanatical support, both online and at our shows. We move the masses with sweat wherever we play. ... more
