歌詞

Maybe we're nothing but skin and bone

 

Blare and rubber eyes that blubber

 

Teeth that bite hands that slide

And I'm trying to do the best I can

But I'm a limited primitive kind of man

 

Maybe we're nothing but skin and bone

 

Nerves that shatter tongues that flatter

Lips that mutter lashes that flutter

 

Mounds of dust and lips of ripe

 

Twice as vicious as the words I type

 

Under a ribbon of every stripe

There's a grip that tightens

 

A dark that frightens

 

A wise that crackles a fear that shackles

And I'm trying to do the best I can

But I'm a limited primitive kind of man

 

And then that kinder creation

Becomes a fine fixation

 

All of a sudden

With the parts we've hidden

 

Because they are forbidden

 

Beneath a hide of pain

You'll find a soul of stain

 

While fists still beat at heart's deceit

 

And I'm trying to do the best I can

But I'm a limited primitive kind of man

 

Maybe with nothing but a drum and drone

I want to beat it 'til I get unknown

 

Pig some skin stretch it tight

 

Make myself up overnight

 

Maybe this is nothing but drum and drone

Wanna beat it 'til I get unknown

 

Dig my pin kick up some stink

 

Find myself a brand new kink

 

Prick that berry and squeeze this ink

 

Scratch out all of the words I think

 

Before your very eyes can blink

 

And I'm trying to do the best I can

But I'm a limited primitive kind of man
