If You Can’t Leave It Be (Letra)

What you found sure upsets you
You never saw it coming, did you?
It’s easy to be surprised with both your eyes sewn closed
Handled with great precision
Another faultless execution
You’re the subject of this exhibition
A willing cadaver
A willing cadaver
Scalpeled, sutured, made whole again

These cuts are leaving creases
Trace the scar, fit the pieces,
Tell your story, you don’t need to say a word
Call off the cavalry
Can’t save a wretch like me
Clean this with kerosene
If you can’t leave it be, might as well make it bleed
Scalpeled, sutured, made whole again

Your wires are frayed, can’t fire right
You look better when out of sight
You were not made to stand and fight
There’s something better wrong with you

Your wires are frayed, can’t fire right
You look better when out of sight
You were not made to fire right
There’s something better wrong with you

Your pulse is anemic
You’re tired of the fire
You’re bruising too easy
And falling behind
And no one is waiting for you
And no one is waiting for you

Call off the quarantine
Can’t save the rest from me
Clean this with kerosene
If you can’t leave it be, might as well make it bleed
Scalpeled, sutured, made whole again
