Exquisite Corpse


Oh God
Iím all sewn up
A hardened razor-cut
Scar map across my body
And you can trace the lines
Through Miseryís design 
That map across my body

A collage
All sewn up
A montage
All sewn up

A random pattern with a needle and thread
The overlapping way diseases are spread
Through a tornado body
With a hand grenade head
And the legs are two lovers entwined

Inside Iím hollowed out
Outsideís a paper shroud
And all the restís illusion
That thereís a will and soul
That we can wrest control
From Chaos and Confusion

A collage
All sewn up
A montage
All sewn up

The automatistís undoing
The whole world starts unscrewing
As time collapses and space warps
You see decay and ruin
I tell you "No No No No"
You make such an exquisite corpse

Iíve got it all sewn up
A hardened razor-cut
Scar map across my body
And you can trace the lines 
Through Miseryís design
That map across my body

A collage
All sewn up
A montage
All sewn up
