  • I am not myself I am
    A broken boxer stuffed with glass and sand
    This is now how health should feel
    Songs sung from the lungs of the elderly

    I'm dead now, check my chest and you'll see
    The light has been mined from me, burned for the heat
    Oh I'm dead now can you hear the relief
    As life's belligerent symphonies finally cease

    I put my heart where my mouth is
    Now I can't thumb it down again
    I've gone devilled my kidneys
    Now he's living inside of me
    So if we can't bring an exorcist
    I'll settle for one of your stiffest drinks
    And we'll scream hell towards heaven's door
    And I will piss on your front porch

    I'm dead now, check my chest you'll see
    The light has been mined from me, burned for the heat
    Oh I'm dead now can you hear the relief
    As life's belligerent symphonies finally cease

    Oh, we're all dead now, join hands and we'll sing
    To the glory of hell and the virtue of sin oh

    There's something wrong with me

    There's something wrong with me
    And it reads nothing like poetry
    So will you love me spite of these
    Ties and inconsistencies
    There is something wrong with me
    Oh theres something wrong with me,
    Oh it reads nothing like poetry
    Ah will you love me spite of these
    Ties and inconsistencies
    There is something wrong with me Writer/s: ANDY MONAGHAN, DAVID WILLIAM LAWRENCE KENNEDY, GRANT DAVID HUTCHISON, RUSSELL GORDON SKENE, SCOTT JOHN HUTCHISON
