  • Lyrics: i tried to keep it my dirty secret's out i've been bluffing i'm holding nothing lurching from the gurney to the floor clear the aisle i'm flapping wildly trying to hold it all down see my bloody miracle and try to force a smile think my mind just might let go this body for a while worry that there's no one left to meet that wide eyed gaze and claw my way straight back into the cage stitch the structure repair the ruptured vein silent outside rumble in my brain dripping from the mirror ashen gray bend the lines away from here and shine them where they belong watch that quaking captive soul she's lost her angel smile think my mind just might let go this body for a while flagging by the wayside with my colors on display, i claw my way straight back into the cage every father does a little addition counting twenty is a noble tradition i can still remember when she taught me how to smile lean against ceramic cool but only for a while fling a motion heavenward that all will be okay and claw my way straight back into the cage
