Mary's surgeon
Called me urgent
Get down to ward?
And? make? my god
(who would date)? in the dark (one date in the dark?)
And for this ?????
I was (savoured)?
????????? and ????? bed
It went to my head

And (we kept her alive)??? (we kept our love)??? I think alive..

If your mouth keeps going where your mind won't go
You don't want to choke so chew it slowly
Nibble the edges on the kitchen floor
If it suits your taste, taste some more
If you worry that it's bitter like a barbie doll
Hold your nose and swallow it whole
If you worry that it's all gonna go to your hips
Roll it round on your rosy lips
If you worry that it's all gonna go to your thighs
Close your eyes for a big surprise....

And Mary's Surgeon
(Caught)? me certain
Brand new flavour
I can save her (savour)?
Such (pity)? in the (part)? beauty?

Mary, run away where we can't find you
Far away from smells that would remind you
Your hometown has burned down

But you will ????? look?
Staring at your face reflected in the fetid water
What shadows will it cast today
Familiar smells of fresh decay
Wish that you could flush yourself away

Complicitly leave your (mark?) definitely mark.

And Mary's Surgeon
Caught me purging
Lord God, save us
It's contagious
It's contagious
It's contagious

??????
Grow up ???????
?????? Catch us???

    General CommentHere, this are right and complete:

    Mary's surgeon
    Called me urgent
    Get down to ward
    And take...my god!
    Who would date me in the dark
    And for this labor
    I was savoured
    Tender and braindead
    It went to my head

    And we kept our lives
    If your mouth keeps going where your mind won't go
    You don't want to choke so chew it slowly
    Nibble the edges on the kitchen floor
    If it suits your taste, taste some more
    If youre worried that it's bitter like a barbie doll
    Hold your nose and swallow it all
    If youre worried that it's all gonna go to your hips
    Roll it round your rosy lips
    If youre worried that it's all gonna go to your thighs
    Close your eyes for a big surprise....

    And Mary's Surgeon
    Called me certain
    Brand new flavour
    I can savour
    Such pity for the part

    Mary's running away where we can't find her
    Far away from smells that would remind her
    Her hometown has burned down

    But you will look
    Staring at your face reflected in the fetid water
    What shadows will it cast today
    Familiar smells of fresh decay
    You wish that you could flush yourself away

    Complicitly leave your mark

    And Mary's surgeon
    Called me urging
    Lord God, save us
    It's contagious
    It's contagious
    It's contagious

    General CommentFrom what i glean from the patchy lyrics, it sounds like a girl struggling with bulimia (i'd like to see you decipher better).

    General CommentHow can lyrics that are so patchy even be permittted to be put up? What happened to standards of quality? Christ.

    But anywho, much thanks to WhereIsJF? for posting the complete song. I definitly interpret this songs meaning as being of the experience of bulimia. I played it for my friend who suffers from the disorder, and he started to cry halfway through. He said it really felt like it hit home, especially the verse-

    "But you will look
    Staring at your face reflected in the fetid water
    What shadows will it cast today
    Familiar smells of fresh decay
    You wish that you could flush yourself away"

    General CommentOh dear. These lyrics coming back to haunt me...

    This transcription was originally mine, that I posted to the Dresden Dolls message board years ago. It was only ever intended as a work-in-progress, in the hope that people would help me figure out the bits I wasn't sure about. But then every time anyone asked about the song, someone always ended up reposting this as it was. And now it's ended up here. Sorry about that, but it wasn't my fault.

    Good to see somebody has sharper ears than me, at least. Nobody's managed to figure out that multi-tracked overlapping bit at the end, then?
