  • The experts agree, the condition was dire
    By all indications the subject should have expired
    You've been banging your head like a teenaged fool
    Here you've been kicked in the neck by a three-legged mule

    Do you care to confess to traumatic abuse?
    You have an advanced case of the decapitation blues

    Upon my release I had my suspicions
    That they were too liberal and skillful with all the incisions
    Cool heads prevailed and now it's all too clear to me
    That reanimation is not what it's all cracked up to be

    Do you care to confess to traumatic abuse?
    You have an advanced case of the decapitation blues

    Now a congress of corpses is always in session
    Debating the wisdom of my current direction
    You've been banging your head like a teenaged fool
    Here you've been kicked in the neck by a three-legged mule

    Do you care to confess to traumatic abuse?
    You have an advanced case of the decapitation blues
    Do you care to confess to traumatic abuse?
    You have an advanced case of the decapitation blues Writer/s: DAN MAINES, JEAN-PAUL GASTER, NEIL FALLON, RICHARD TIMOTHY SULT
