Ripe

I dressed up the horses, set them loose

Sunk the needle deep and took in every drop

A violent path and inch in time

And ever my device the anchor drops

 

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

Pinch ’til the feeling’s gone

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

Pinch ’til the feeling’s gone

 

Miles of horses gallop to the edge

I saw murder in their mouths we try to wear

Powerful, more muscle than stiff lip

The reins are chains and I have lost my grip

 

Try with all my heart I choke, I’m ready to go

And if you’re through with me then please say so

Try with all my heart I choke, I’m ready to go

And if you’re through with me then please just say so

 

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

Pinch ’til the feeling’s gone

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

I said peel the skin raw

Pinch ’til the feeling’s gone

 

You build this game to play and to pretend

You are a dark machine and I’m a cult

When engines crack when fuel lines break off

I’ll save your bits and let your motor rot
