SCAB AND PLASTER

 

1st Verse:

 

I stepped into a room of clocks that all told different times,

I stepped into a mirrored world that mirrored all our crimes,

You keep picking at the scab and I'll keep selling the plaster,

You keep telling me that I'm bad,

But I keep on getting better faster,

You hold me down and you hold me up,

You can't communicate,

You brought me up just to bring me down,

I've nothing left to say...

 

Chorus:

 

I've lost, I've lost my innocence,

I've found my self-belief,

And in a cup of loneliness,

I've found instant relief,

You hold me down, you hold me up,

Oh Daddy, are we out of luck?

You brought me up to bring me down,

You shut me in, you shut me up...

 

2nd Verse:

 

I'm gone, I'm gone to heaven,

I'm gone, I'm gone to hell,

If nobody could see I'd hold my hand out to be held,

I wish that you could just admint,

that you did bad things too,

instead of critisising me so I don't look at you,

You hold me down and you hold me up,

I can't communicate,

You brought me up just to bring me down,

I've nothing left to say...

 

Chorus:

 

I've lost, I've lost my innocence,

I've found my self-belief,

And in a cup of loneliness,

I've found instant relief,

You hold me down, you hold me up,

Oh Daddy, are we out of luck?

You brought me up, you bring me down,

You shut me in, you shut me up...

 

Bridge:

 

You keep picking at the scab,

So I'll keep on selling the plaster,

And you, you think I'm bad,

So I'll keep on getting better faster...

 

Final-Chorus:

 

I've lost, I've lost my innocence,

I've found my self-belief,

And in a cup of loneliness,

I've found instant relief,

You hold me down, you hold me up,

Oh Daddy, are we out of luck?

You brought me up to bring me down,

You shut me in, you shut me out...

 

I've lost, I've lost my confidence,

I found my self-belief,

And in a cup of loneliness,

I sailed a thousand seas,

You tell me what to say and wear,

You say that it's because you care,

But I prefer to be alone,

Than live a life that's not my own...
