We’re not dead, just heavily sedated,
Can you tell, by the way we dress,
Got the stars stuck in our eyes
A manikin in depth to the veteran
So would you spare some change for the man with cardboard in his hands
And I love you more than life, as if you couldn’t guess,
When every whisper and caress that was meaningless

And my dear you are the bow
And I’m a clown stuck in this ring to entertain you
Go clinch your chest
We’ll all be dead quite soon
And it’s no easy thing, when I have never meant a thing to you

We’re just sexually frustrated
With a thirst for unknown blood
Got the warm gun at our side
Mother I fear what’s between their ears
For the bodies take a track
And the mind takes it all back

And I love you more than life, as if you couldn’t guess,
When every whisper and caress that was meaningless
And my dear you are the bow
And I’m a clown stuck in this ring to entertain you
Go clinch your chest
We’ll all be dead quite soon
And it’s no easy thing, when I have never meant a thing to you
Meant a thing to you

And I love you more than life, as if you couldn’t guess,
When every whisper and caress that was meaningless
And my dear you are the bow
And I’m a clown stuck in this ring to entertain you
Go clinch your chest
We’ll all be dead quite soon
And it’s no easy thing, when I have never meant a thing to you

    General Commenttheres only one version and he says go quit your jobs. duh. go clinch your chest does'nt even make sense with the line. go quit your jobs we'll all be dead quite soon just makes sense and it sounds like it so it must be.

    General CommentI love the "And I love you more than life, as if you couldn’t guess,
    When every whisper and caress that was meaningless" part.
    I love that line so much.
