lyrics

Hang them out in the yard,
from the tree they sway.
Burn the witches to mask.
Let the liars play.
It's not your fault that's the way it is.
It's a preliminary first kiss.

Won't you read him his rights,
necrophiliac
Forget the birds and the bees,
that ain't what brought you back
It's not your fault that's just the way you're made.
You're a machine, guillotine blade.

When my bones break, would you just lower me in?
As dark as the ink where your pen begins.
We've lived for far long we know
the difference between the blood and bone

Move the mountains aside.
Throw the stones away.
Take the blood from the limbs
and give it all to the brain.
It's not your fault you've had no chance.
It's second nature, this is romance.

Hide your tools in the back.
No one ever will know.
When everybody is gone
you'll hold your own funeral.
It's not your fault and you'll never mind
Another routine genocide.

When my bones break, would you just lower me in?
As dark as the ink where your pen begins.
We've lived for far long we know
the difference between the blood and bone.
