"The Leper" as written by and Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.....
Embarrassed to be alive
Sit with my life, open wide
Your stare is forcing my face open
A leper crumbling, never joking
Who should I believe

Safest to wallow in my own esteem
Afraid, stick my neck out
Knowing the day has drawn

I'm a leper scared beyond this feeling
I dare to escape
A leper doomed to this
My life is chosen to rape

Embarrassed to be alive
Sit with my life open wide
Your stare is forcing my face open
A leper crumbling never joking

I'm a leper scared beyond this feeling
I dare to escape
A leper doomed to this
My life is chosen to rape

I'm a leper, leper, leper

    General CommentInstead of "Knowing the day has drawn" I think hes saying "Knowing it will get hacked off"

    General CommentHe uses leprosy as a metaphor for his life, with particular reference to self esteem I think
