lyrics

Drip drip drip the rain falling down on me,
Trip trip trip there's me falling down on my knees again,
and your dead cold eyes hold me down,
and these grey cold are closing in on me again,
I could turn back time, rewind it all
and I could cut to fade see me falling down again

I will rip my face off, I'll be ten feet tall, to see you coming
and I will be the damn fool made to your hearts desire
please don't take this habit from my arms
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

I'm your mad old fool tapes spooling round my knees
and with an ice cold grip this pictures I hold in my hand
and your shining eyes they hold me down
and these grey cold walls closing in on me again

I will rip my face off, I'll be ten feet tall, to see you coming
and I will be the damn fool made to your hearts desire
please don't take this habit from my arms
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

I will rip my face off, I'll be ten feet tall, to see you coming
and I will be the damn fool made to your hearts desire
please don't take this habit from my arms
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

Close our eyes, play the scenes behind our eyes
and one last kiss lift up and whirl me around
and your smiling eyes will hold me down
and I am ten feet tall

to hold you again...
