lyrics

Their cross is marked upon my chest in extinguished cigarettes I guess I’ll be easier to identify, or recognize a pantomime underneath a suit and tie.
A rash, a badge, a permanently attached scar was due. No rest for the scared, embarrassed and distressed. A net or harness keeps me pressed unless they turn me loose when my spirit signs off and resigns. A bird will not return once it learns to fly and from the nest of sleepless nights it flew. I can’t restore my faith or sense when each sequence of events goes bad to worse. I’m sure I warned that they would get what they deserved and if my memory serves I kept my word. How are you supposed to act when all of those maniacs are staring back at you?
