"Bed of Nails" as written by and Mould....
I can walk the bed of nails
I'm not the only one
But some, they cannot walk the jagged line
Callous, concentrating
For nails are sharp as lies
I run the jagged line

From years and years of practice
I know just how to stand
Alone with perfect balance, hand-in-hand
Prepared with boards and hammers
And several bags of nails
Well, I could build a wall to lean on
Roof above my mind
But I can see you've got your own plans
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine

This heart of mine

I can walk the bed of nails
Grin and bear the pain
But some, they cannot deal with all these things
And always sacrificing
For lies are sharp as nails
And all the pain it brings

Sometimes I just pretend that all the lies are true
And then I know I might depend on you
But if my concentration breaks
I'm washed away with pain
And then my feet begin to bleed upon my only bed of nails
And I'm stuck here in the middle
Of a sea of lies, inside my bed of nails

Inside my bed, inside my bed of nails

From years and years of practice
I know just how to stand
Alone with perfect balance, hand-in-hand
Prepared with boards and hammers
And several bags of nails
Well, I could build a wall to lean on
Roof above my mind
I can see you've got your own plans
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine

Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine
Please don't drive your nails into this heart of mine
Oh, heart of, oh, oh
