Exquisite Corpse

This song has been covered by Yo La Tengo under the title "Hedwig's Lament/Exquisite Corpse".
I've got it all sewn up
A hardened razor-cut
Scar-map across my body
And you can trace the lines
Through misery's design
That map across my body

A collage
I'm all sewn up
A montage
I'm all sewn up

A random pattern with a needle and thread
The overlapping way diseases are spread
To a tornado body
With a hand gernade head
And the legs are two lovers entwined

Inside I'm hollowed out
Outside's a paper shroud
And all the rest's illusion
That there's a will and soul
That we can wrest control
From chaos and confusion

A collage
I'm all sewn up
A montage
I'm all sewn up

The automatist's undoin'
The whole world starts unscrewin'
As time collapses and space warps
You see decay and ruin
I tell you, "no, no, no, no
You make such an exquisite corpse"

I got it all sewn up
A hardened razor cut scab up across my body
And you can trace the lines through misery's design
That map across my body
A collage
I'm all sewn up
A montage
I'm all sewn up
