Does my eye offend you?
Should I roll it down the hill?
Should I wear an iron mask
Or warn you with a bell?

In quarantine, I stay unseen
I still know how to feel
And though you never touch me
I am sure nothing ever touches you

You've no need to defend your actions
I can understand
My mirror wept "surrender"
So I threw in both my hands

Before I just conceded
I can't figure in your plans
Though I'll never touch you,
You'll be sure nothing ever touches me

I shrivel when the sun comes out
I cry beneath the moon
You'll find me in a long lost alley
Hiding in my "room"

But don't you dare come near me
Cause I don't know what I'll do
If someone ever touched me
Maybe I could just consider touching you.

(Love me...)

    General CommentOne of the harder songs for me to decipher; it's got a very haunting vibe to it, and the lyrics seem to indicate a very deep contempt.
