"Leper Friend" as written by Levi Seacer, Gary Hines, Billy Steele, Carrie Harrington and Andre Raysha Locke....
Pretty faces, pretty hip
Bodies hang to drain and drip
So submit and let's pretend
You're not a hollow charlatan

Velcro whores they fill the streets
Infecting everyone they meet
The hourglass is karma's curse
Each grain of sand's a universe

Laser beams and cattle prods
Sacrifices for the gods
Divinities orgasmic hymns
Will fuck you with prosthetic limbs

Ulcerations form, they know
Soon will lose fingers and toes
Swollen ends, bloody gauze
Curse us all

I've watched you suffer
For so long it seems
Somehow I look the other way

I've watched you fall apart
Like my leper friend
Somehow I look the other way

An outcast deprived of festal joy
Prostration, it seems is here to stay

My limbless friend will die alone
A torso of flesh upon the throne

My limbless friend will die alone
A torso of flesh upon

The cure for clinical depression is a lobotomy
The cure for clinical depression is a lobotomy

My limbless friend will die alone
A torso of flesh upon the throne

My limbless friend will die alone
A torso of flesh upon the throne

My limbless friend will die alone
A torso of flesh upon the throne

My limbless friend will die alone
A torso of flesh upon the throne

I've watched you fall apart
Like my leper friend
Somehow I look the other way

I've watched you suffer
For so long it seems
Somehow I look the other way

Leper, leper friend (x3)

    General CommentThis song is great and totally freaky! I love the crcus organ but what it's about? Your guess is as good as mine! It's probably all metaphorical and he doesn't really have a friend who is a leper...at least I hope not! :confused:

    General CommentIt's about how all his friends seem to "fall apart" over lifes small problems. And all he can do is watch...

    General CommentIts pretty obvious that this song is about someone suffering throughout his/her life and 'falling apart' and is depressed. well, its partially about that, and partially about being an outsider, being a social reject and an individual.

    The 'falling apart' metaphors are pretty easy to spot, but hyte outsider ones are there too, "outcast deprived of festal joy". the hollow charlatans and velcro whores are probably reffering to those fukking popular bastards that treat people like me like shit cos we're not the same as them, and when he says "the cure...a lobotomy" i bet he's talking about how those asshole don't think. maybe he's saying theyre the ones making the 'leper' guy depressed
