lately, i swear there's something crawling on my skin.
an indication of the shape i'm in.

totally aware of where i am
and how far down.
somebody has got to
come and pull me out.

mother, will you help me make it go away?
mother, will you help me make it all right?

maybe i should try
and go the other way
i don't think it's gonna help me anyway.

mother, will you help me make it go away?
mother, will you help me make it all right?
mother, will you take me back inside?
take me back inside. inside of me.

lately, i fear there's something eating me alive.
it's getting ever difficult for me to hide.
i don't remember ever asking anything from you.
too bad the thing i really need you cannot do.

mother, will you help me make it go away?
mother, will you help me make it all right?
mother, will you take me back inside?
take me back inside. inside. inside. take me back inside.

    General Commentthe classic "mother will you make it go away" makes you feel as though it's a child crying out for help ... wants her mother to make everything feel better ... perhaps the themed incest on the other song plays a part in this "lately, i swear there's something crawling on my skin"
