Anesthetic For The Amputee

This song is by Slowreader and appears on the album Slowreader (2002).

Couldn't save the savior from savoring
If this life now hurts you, I'm sorry
Can I hold a candle to enduring
Taken in a way that you say
Say you can feel it

Refusal of the anesthetic for this amputee
Cut off parts and cut up pieces
Lord I know you're looking down
Wont you give me the strength
To cut these hands free,
Cut a river through my veins

Drowned out by this contradiction
Beaten back from your position
Comforted by some fucking superstition
I thought I could hold on with one hand
But you knew I couldn't do it

Refusal of the anesthetic for this amputee
Cut off parts and cut up pieces
Lord I know you're looking down
Wont you give me the strength
Pull that trigger, put that bullet through my

[I] never understood
Why you wouldn't want to think
But now I understand perfectly

Its just the anesthetic given to the amputee
Cut off parts and cut up pieces
Lord I know you're looking down
Wont you give me the strength
Pull that trigger, put that bullet through my brain
