Here’s my evisceration,
Everything revealed,
I gut myself before you,
You’re keeping your eyes peeled,

You’ve opened up the tomb which up till now was sealed,
Now it’s up to you to see exactly how I feel,

You were so seductive but I think you’re using me,
To access things you’ll never understand.

I told you in whispers secret words that everyone now seems to have heard,
And I don’t understand.

I’m trusted with a secret,
I don’t know if I should tell,
I want to stand on roofs and shout,
But you’d send me straight to hell,

I want to use the megaphone, I want to ring the bell,
I want to scream, I want to shout, I want to bawl and yell.

Your absence, like a hand pushing tight across my mouth,
A need to speak that I can’t understand.

I told you in whispers secret words that everyone now seems to have heard,
And I don’t understand.

Now it seems the grass is greener on my side of the fence,
You said I let you down before but where’s your evidence?
I’m tired of being the victim,
I’m tired of being the fool,
Insurgency kicked off the day the kids went back to school.

Now I’m confused as hell about the situation we’re in,
Bewildered and I don’t understand.

I told you in whispers secret words that everyone now seems to have heard,
And I don’t understand.

Look at the lonely little white boy writing words no one will hear,
And if they do they’ll never understand.
If they do they’ll never understand…

    General CommentI've heard this played live and it's beautiful! I think it's about a couple who have a secret between them, which both of them are failing to keep. Any thoughts?
