Obliterate

lyrics

I had trouble locating my heart
after the mirror tore its subject apart
I have trouble asking others for help
so I went and did the job for myself
This bit goes here and that bit goes there
This part fits here and that part fits anywhere
Sew it all up and dress it in a nice suit
There you go boy, you’re just as good as new
How many times can you put yourself back together?

There was an awful pressure on my brain
when my reflection fell to pieces again
And the television wasn’t much help
No matter how hard I looked at it I couldn’t see myself
This bit is ugly, and that bit’s a mess
This needs replacing and that looks distressed
Rearrange your stuffing and disinfect your wounds
There you go boy, you’re just as good as new
How many times can you put yourself back together?
