  • 2 Broke Wide Open
  • 3 The Blade Keeps Cutting
  • 4 Next in Line

  • Just one quick glance was all that it took
    Trapped in your stare of judgement
    As we pass each other on the street
    And I look into your robot eyes as you make your careful calculations
    I choke on your perfume as you file me into lower class
    The moment stretches as I hear the cries of everyone
    That you have stepped on so many throats
    Bled dry to get to who you are today
    A lifetime spent swinging the sharpest of knives
    Oh how I'd like to take it all away
    One twitch of the finger one moment of heart felt compassion
    Break you wide open
    Stare straight through your center
    A lifetime spent with so little sweat
    That nothing in you grew nothing but vanity and twisted wires
    From a rusted heart that slightly resembles a cash register
    Just one look that says it all
    While you figure out just what I'm worth
    And that's the best that you've got
    That and a thousand dollar handbag
    How'd I like to wash it all away
    There is a middle in you somewhere
    Break it open
    For the world to see one quick beautiful violent motion
    A lifetime spent swinging the sharpest of knives
    And you wonder why I am so obsessed with guns…
