sitting there faking at the picture of perfection
waking at the time done fine grey matter

looking at the blood with the brimming of a dead head
wondering if the sunshine will ever catch your eye

picking at the dead skin
how does gonorrhea feel
watch it re(a)d
(keep it sped)
falling off a horses high

(second day) sunshine working out the bigger sin
deep inside the house before the roof caved in

sleeping on the side (trains watching through the absent)
(peace for love and killing them).....
everybody's always flocking by
death the bodies kicking down
everyone is said and done
believe this shit is still to come

pain is just his tragedy
why is everything so needy
bottomless laughter raises the shaft
taking it after (the shit)

pain (mistrust) (it's) tragedy
pain is just his tragedy
why is everything so needy

sitting there faking at the picture of perfection
waking at the time done fine grey matter

    My InterpretationNow Skinny Puppy has been quite... vauge on this album... but this is my 5:15 AM interpretation of it.

    sitting there faking at the picture of perfection
    [ Pretending you're something you're not, as in okay, as in image perfect, posing as perfection. ]

    waking at the time done fine grey matter
    [ Grey matter meaning brain without bloodflow, therefore implying zombification? Probably calling this subject another drone to society waking to everyone else's world and conforming to it as well. ]

    looking at the blood with the brimming of a dead head
    [ Assuming this person is cutting him or her self, it shows mental flaw, and it shows how the person knows he or she is not perfect. ]

    wondering if the sunshine will ever catch your eye
    [ Wondering if you'll ever see reality ]

    picking at the dead skin
    how does gonorrhea feel
    watch it re(a)d
    (keep it sped)
    falling off a horses high
    [ Apparently what this means is the person is doing some type of drug, such as crack, or heroin, and is giving his or her body for the drugs. "falling off a horses high" might imply some time of withdrawal, I'm new at this mind you. ]

    (second day) sunshine working out the bigger sin
    deep inside the house before the roof caved in
    [ The person is digging him or her self into a deeper addiction towards the drugs, sex, the "high" life where everything is said to be perfect. ]

    sleeping on the side (trains watching through the absent)
    (peace for love and killing them).....
    everybody's always flocking by
    death the bodies kicking down
    everyone is said and done
    believe this shit is still to come
    [ This is stating how reality is taking the person down a peg, and the downward spiral, and the withdrawals begin to take the mass effect. ]

    pain is just his tragedy
    why is everything so needy
    bottomless laughter raises the shaft
    taking it after (the shit)
    [ Due to his or her fall from the top, due to the drugs, and the indignifications the person went through, this person is being mocked from those who once knew him or her, then he or she figures out there are more needs to becoming popular and famous than he or she had percepted, and he or she is mocked and outcasted for his or her ignorance. ]

    ain (mistrust) (it's) tragedy
    pain is just his tragedy
    why is everything so needy
    [ About the same as above, but now the person no longer trusts anyone. ]

    General CommentIf you have the special iTunes version of this album, one of the lines written in the digital booklet reads "After all is said and done we live to shit to kill to come." I think that's how they meant this song to read.
