They set me up real nice here in the corner
I’ve got my very own self to keep my mind and body warm

They set me up real nice in the back room
Even let me eat the shit they borne

Don’t nobody know any better, I suppose
Ain’t nobody looking really
But the winter’s getting cold and I need

Love that breaks me down
So I can sit up straight and look ahead
Hearts that kill my bones
So I can be alive instead of dead
I need that doesn’t care
If I get mad, or if I’m not always convenient
I need blood more real than what’s
Running through my veins
I need safe

I guess I just got used to bending
It’s the greatest magic trick the world has ever seen
Tell me how it is and I’ll shift my shape
I won’t even remember it tomorrow

Nobody told me any better
They just watched me turn into
A little shook-up bottle of soda, I need…

So come up now, come from where you are
All you people who’ve seen the sign
Gather up, gather ‘round me now
If you’re willing to clear up the lies

You will hear a loud explosion
Followed by bits and pieces of me
Flying aimlessly

And we’ll put it back together
The way it should have been
The way it should have been
The way it was at first
The way it was at first
The way I will be
The way I am

    General CommentI so wish there was a clean version of this song! It's very touching and I think the lyrics really hit home for many people. I also think they are very real and what many people think about.

    I guess I just got used to bending
    It’s the greatest magic trick the world has ever seen
    Tell me how it is and I’ll shift my shape
    I won’t even remember it tomorrow

    Such a beautiful way to put it. It's a really emotional song and for me, it's pretty obvious what the meaning behind it is.
