Such flesh is a threat in the hot sun;
I'd feel safer sat with your skeleton.
A few less tears would be welcome...
Would you mind if I touched your ischium?

The test of the neck is the earlobes;
And I'm fond of the way yours adorn your throat.
My sharpness of mind suits your elbows...
I think it's my turn on your telescope.

Even if your joints have a weakness,
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
Even if your joints have a weakness,
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

You've got devastating bones and I'd like to call them home.
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
You've got devastating bones and I'd like to call them home.
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

I suggest that we rest near the deep end;
If the forecast's right, it's just common sense.
And I didn't anticipate weeping,
But your neck slightly wet is magnificent.

The way the light plays on your ribcage;
It puts me in mind of a savage age.
I think we've said all we can about X-Rays...
Would you care to corrupt my shoulder blades?

Even if your joints have a weakness,
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
Even if your joints have a weakness,
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

You've got devastating bones and I'd like to call them home.
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
You've got devastating bones and I'd like to call them home.
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

I've got zero faith in your free will -
I've seen your sternum! I've seen your sternum!
You'd be quite a picture if you'd just stand still -
But you're still learning! But you're still learning!

I've got zero faith in your free will -
I've seen your sternum! I've seen your sternum!
You'd be quite a picture if you'd just stand still -
But you're still learning! But you're still learning!

And the thing that holds you in; it's certainly not your skin.
And the thing that holds you in; it's certainly not your skin.
And the thing that holds you in; it's certainly not your skin.
And the thing that holds you in; it's certainly not your skin.

Even if your joints have a weakness,
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
Even if your joints have a weakness,
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

You've got devastating bones and I'd like to call them home.
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
You've got devastating bones and I'd like to call them home.
I think you might need those knees for kneeling.

I think you might need those knees for kneeling.
