Take my eyes, take them aside
Take my face, and desecrate
My arms and legs
They get in the way

And take my hands, they'll understand
Take my heart, pull it apart
And take my brain, or what remains
And throw it all away
'Cos I've grown tired of this body
A cumbersome and heavy body

Take my lungs, take them and run
Take my tongue, go have some fun
And take the ears, take them and disappear
Take my joints, take them for points
Take my teeth, tear through my cheeks
And take the nose go and dispose
Oh would you go dispose, just go dispose

'Cos I've grown tired of this body
A cumbersome and heavy body

I've grown tired of this body
Fall apart without me body

Take my (eyes),
take them (aside)
Take my (face)
and desa (crate)
Arms and (legs)
Get in the (way)
Bodies (break)

I've grown tired of this body
Cumbersome and heavy body

Tired of this body
Fall apart without me body

Tired of this body
Cumbersome and heavy

Tired of this body
Fall apart without me

Tired of this body
tired of this body
tired of this body
cumbersome and heavy body

Heavy body
heavy body
heavy body

    General CommentI personally think it's just think it's about feeling so tired and fed up with everything to the point that you want people to just take all of what you are because you just don't care anymore.

    Well that's pretty much what I feel whenever I listen to it anyway. Haha

    Song MeaningThis is a very good song, and props to the many rhymes for the body parts.

    As for actual song meaning, it seems that the artist is merely making a statement about his/her self image, or maybe even self confidence. I think it's a safe bet to say that the artist doesn't feel comfortable being as they are, and would seek to alter their image of themselves given the chance.

    My InterpretationI agree with Bjanes18 but I want to further elaborate on what was said. It might be hard to understand what Bjanes18 was saying but I think that it is about just feeling disconnected with yourself and losing that level of self love and self care that you once had. You begin to just not care about your body. It's really just an empty vessel. You are physically there but mentally not. It's also about feeling numb, feeling like you don't care whats done to you because you know it won't hurt, and you know it won't feel good. I go through this kind of feeling when I go through my depression.

    My InterpretationThis definitely reminds me of my health problems, I've actually said variations of "I just wanna rip these stupid organs outta my body!" before. but as for the intended meaning, I'm thinking the speaker is frustrated with herself, like "fuck this, I give up."

    General CommentI think this is about dissociation and feeling disconnected from your body (as was mentioned earlier). I deal with this a lot thanks to gender dysphoria and so I relate to this song a lot.
