Substitution

lyrics

I woke up this morning & chopped off my own leg
just to watch the blood escaping.
Watched it come flowing all crimson and wet,
gushing and gushing and gushing.
Not to be gothy & not to be crude,
But sometimes that just what you’ve got to do.
It serves to distract me as a substitution
from spending all day thinking only of you.

Cuz I know that you do it sometimes.
I know you think about me too.
I know that you do it sometimes.
I know that, I know that, I know that it’s true.

I woke up this morning & surveyed the damage,
looked down at the stump right there in my room.
I reached for a broomstick or Scotch tape or something,
with which to forge a substitute.
I stumbled & fumbled & hobbled outside.
High above, the sun was shining.
I wandered off hoping that no one would notice,
wondering why you weren’t right here beside me.

Cuz I know that you do it sometimes.
I know you think about me too.
I know that you do it sometimes.
I know that, I know that, I know that it’s true.
