all free all wild

all free all wild

i dance here naked to be had unveiled
displaying all i got all free all wild
why do i still try? i must have failed

cut signals crossed or cursed sure got me nailed
i've drawn a crater where i might have smiled
i dance here naked to be had unveiled

skin scratches out its scabs all scuffed all scaled
it takes diseases after which it's styled
why do i still try? i must have failed

ain't nothing left to show myself impaled
ain't nothing sacred that won't get defiled
i dance here naked to be had unveiled

it's written out in blood's discards detailed
we'll never get condemned word reconciled
why do i still try? i must have failed

what hollows out this storm inside me's wailed
there may as well have never been the child
i dance here naked to be had unveiled
why do i still try? i must have failed
