Scar tissue torn back to ribbons
Gnawed by memory, I sit alone
Skin talk, speaking in tongues
YOU

My shelter, my gilded cage, my pit of despair
It becomes ritualized, becomes ritual lies
It takes all you've got to break away
To end the compromise, and to realize
You're going to carry your secrets
Through the gauntlet of revilers and despisers
For the rest of your life
Opium of cheap affection- bought and paid for by infection
In the west: home…
It becomes ritualized, becomes ritual lies
It takes all you've got to break away
To end the compromise and to realize
You're going to carry your secrets
To you grave
Never tear us apart
Never break us apart
Never let them come between us
Never throw it away
Tear us apart
Break us apart
Let them come between us
Throw it all
Away
