Needle and thread, flesh and bone Spit and sinew, heartbreak is home Your suture lines sparkle like diamonds Bright stars to light my confinement The bow is so old, it's horsehair is glue Sent to the factory, just like me and you So how come they stayed your execution? The audience roars it's a standing ovation I'll be your mess, you be mine That was the deal that we had signed I bought a hazmat suit to clean up your waste Gas masks, gloves to keep us safe But now I'm alone in an empty room Staring down immaculate doom The clothes are packed off to Goodwill I said my goodbyes up on that hill The house is empty, the furniture sold Soon your smells will decay to mold Don't know why I bother calling, ain't nobody answering Don't know why I bother singing, ain't nobody listening First you inspect me Then you dissect me Then you reject me First you inspect me Then you dissect me Then you reject me I wait for the day That you'll resurrect me Barrel of the gun, rounds one two three She says I have to pick: choose you, or choose me Metal to the temple, the explosion is deafening Lick the blood that covers me She's the last one standing There's a piece of lead where my heart should be Doctor said too dangerous to take out You'd better just leave it be Body grew back around, a miracle, praise be Now, if only I could get past airport security The boogeyman sleeps on your side of the bed Whispers in my ear: "Better off dead." Fills my dreams with sirens and lights of regret Kisses me gently when I wake up in a sweat You crossed the water, left me ashore It killed me enough, but you wanted more You blew up the bridge, a mad terrorist Waved from your side, threw me a kiss I started to follow but realized to late There was nothing but air beneath my feet Are you happy in your misery? Resting peaceful in desolation? It's the final tie that binds us The source of my consolation Someone wake me up when it's over When the evening silence softens golden Just lay me on a bed of clover Oh, I need help with this burden First you inspect me Then you dissect me Then you reject me First you inspect me Then you dissect me Then you reject me I wait for the day That you'll resurrect me

I was the peach You were the plum Dancing to dance Just to sing in the sun You were my life Yeah, you were mine But we're singing to sing Just to pass the time Where did those days go? Just sing in the rainbow Loving at night and dreaming with halos You were my life Yeah, you were mine But we're singing to sing Just to pass the time Look at her go The most beautiful you know Leave me in the dust And breathing in the snow You were my life Yeah, you were mine Reach for the door keys Slapped at my hand I was the peach You were the plum Dancing to dance Just to sing in the sun You were my life Yeah, you were mine But were singing to sing Just to pass the time Where did those days go? Just sing in the rainbow Loving at night and dreaming with halos You were my life Yeah, you were mine But we're dancing to dance Just to pass the time Burning at night And freezing my toes I reach for the door keys Slapped at my hand Now Im just crying on the floor You were the peach I was the plum Dancing to dance Just to sing in the sun

Dear Mister Universe I’ve been so very hurt You screwed me over Since I was conceived You gave me unstable genes And made sure to confuse me Dear Mister Universe Your sure a jerk I’ve been having to deal with your mistakes Since I was born Till I was eight I always wondered why My mom was crazy You screwed her over Too wa-who! Your really quite a piece of work Oh Mister, Mister Universe Why must you be this way I tried to behave It only caused me so much pain And when I was rude So very crude It didn't help at all Dear Mister Universe Please tell me what you want Cuz I'm trying, I'm trying My self esteem Is low My will declining So are you watching This unfold Is the sky A front row show I wonder if you Like to watch This all unfold Dear Mister Universe Dear Mister Universe You are quite a piece of work Oh Mister, Mister Universe Why don’t you leave me alone Dear Mister Universe Your wrecking my home Dear Mister Universe This ain’t comedy My fate isn’t a commodity So please be careful Can’t you see There’s only one of me Oh Mister Mister Universe Mister Universe

I'm counting the bones I'm counting the bones The graveyard's cold But I'm feeling so bold I’m on a roll, a roll The Rolling Stones couldn't hold me back I'm gonna sing I'm gonna yell I'm gonna stomp I'm gonna shout I'm gonna say it now: I'm counting the bones I'm counting the bones My hearts like stone But it ain't too cold Cuz the lighter in my pocket The gasoline in my tub Don't burn no more But I'm still on fire... I'm feeling the burn I'm counting the bones I'm counting, counting I'm counting the bones I broke my wrists Breaking these chains I cracked my skull When I banged the pain away But as I walk up this hill When I hit the top And the road stops I'll touch the heavens Before I fall right down to Hell The sun is bright It does bring warmth But the cold it's nice It's bitter and the ice is old It refreshes my soul I won't ever do what I'm told I'm counting the bones I'm counting the bones I'm counting, counting I'm counting the bones As we all fall down I'm counting the bones As we all fall down

The look in her eyes It brings me to my demise on my knees... She'll be: My demise, her eyes... There's nowhere to hide My demise... She's mine tonight But I want her forever She'll be demise Just how I want to I die In her arms tonight I said: Will you be here in the morning? She said forever. She said forever... That look in her eyes It'll be, my demise Just how I want to die In her arms But it's only tonight She said forever Yeah But she lied.
