  • My tender carrion
    The damage has been done
    From the depths of your heart
    To the tip of my tongue
    Not a word you can say
    Can erase memories of that night
    That awful night

    It hides behind your eyes
    I can feel it in my bones
    It's come to tenderize us all
    Tonight with sticks and stones

    St. Anthony, this agony
    It's eating at my soul
    Much like nothing this world has ever known

    I found a hiding place
    Not far from here
    They'll never find a trace
    Of you and I my dear
    In a world far away
    We'd pass out from the pain
    But not here
    We feel it loud and clear

    It hides behind your eyes
    I can feel it in my bones
    It's come to tenderize us all
    Tonight with sticks and stones

    St. Anthony, this agony
    It's eating at my soul
    Much like nothing this world has ever known
    Nothing this world has ever known (known)

    It's over now until it happens again
    You haven't lived until you've seen suffering like this
    It's over now until it happens again
    You haven't lived until you've seen suffering like this
    (Like this)
    You haven't lived until you've seen suffering like

    It hides behind your eyes
    I can feel it in my bones
    It's come to tenderize us all
    Tonight with sticks and stones

    St. Anthony, this agony
    It's eating at my soul
    Much like nothing this world has ever known
    (Nothing this world has ever known)
    Nothing this world has ever known (known) Writer/s: DANIEL ANDRIANO, DEREK GRANT, MIKE SKIBA
