I found her
With my scissor
This heart fell
To the ground

I'm supposed to save you now
But my hands are flipping out
I'm a coward in a soft-core army
I leave this blood to dry

I leave this blood to dry

I dragged her body to the parking lot
I tried to find herA savior right there amongst the cars

Just then I
Began to quiver
When I saw her
Blinking eye
She was alive

And she's breathing
Alive

    General CommentI think it's the story of someone who found someone who cut herself (by accident or as suicide) and feels he should save her, but he's too scared to do anything. Instead, he tries to pass this burden to someone else, looking for it in the worst places possible, secretly wishing she'd die soon and let him free from this obligation. And then he discovers she's alive and, even worse, awake, and can testimony he's cowardice and lack of morals.

    General Comment"She was alive... and breathing!!"

    Very gothic, reminds me of an EA Poe story or a Nick Cave song, but it's quite over the top and funny as well

    General Commentthis is an amazing song, has bits akin to plaster casts and The Other Side of Mt. Heart Attack.

    General CommentAt the start, it reminds me of an old hymn.
