Cone of Shame

Album: Sol Invictus (2015)

  • I'd like to peel the skin off
    This winter day
    I'd like to bone the head off
    This summer fling
    What love can do when love's lost
    Grow overweight
    And smile as if
    There's nothing left to say
    Wear the cone of shame
    Town is quiet now
    Like it's holding it's breath
    Stone marks the spot
    You know who you are
    They outlined it in chalk
    Word to the wise
    And the barman calls die
    I'd like to peel your skin off
    So I can see what you really think
    Or if there is anything
    Under that cone of shame
    I'd like to strip the bone off
    So I can see how you're really made
    And see how you really take
    Your special pleasure
    I'd like to pull your wings off
    Read your lines like a gypsy
    Just as lonely as anything
    So infinite

    Cone of shame covering all
    You're only happy when you're pissing me off
    Cone of shame covering all
    Cone of shame, cone of shame
    I'm only happy when I'm pissing you off Writer/s: Bill David Gould, Michael Patton
