To Peel Away Your Bandages

TO PEEL AWAY YOUR BANDAGES

can’t find a way
to break it to you gently now, can they
ain’t no sugar
helps this pill go down

can’t run away
bandaids on a bruise are on display
we lend a hand
a life vest in quicksand

LOOK THERE’S MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE IN THERE LISTEN, MORE THAN MEETS

THE EAR IN THERE WHEN YOU HIT IT ON THE NOSE
BE CLEAR
I’M ALWAYS HERE
TO PEEL AWAY YOUR BANDAGES MY DEAR

back at the joint
they’re hammering away the latest fix
pins and needles
stones and beatles

i can’t relax
see you through a door of sliding glass
it’s locked again

the gun is cocked again CHORUS

I EVEN MADE THE CRUTCHES FOR YOU
WHEN IN YOUR CLUTCHES DON’T LOOK DOWN

YOU WON’T SEE ME ON THE GROUND
I’LL RISE ABOVE THE SMOKE AGAIN FOR NOW
