Lyrics

When all should be done and gone
He comes round again to see
He can't keep himself away
He touches her hand and it starts again

His work is an ugly mess
He prods and it cries in pain
He kicks and it starts to scream
He hurries away when she cannot see

When all should be done and gone
He comes round again to see
He can't keep himself away
He touches her hand and it starts again

Moving so slowly
Droplets of kindness that poison and choke when this thing should have died long ago!

The entrails are soft and warm
This time it must be the end
One touch and it lives again
He keeps it alive to be part of its pain

And that's mercy
And that's compassion
And that's being good friends in a crisis
What's one corpse between friends?

Leave it, boy
Just leave it alone
Stop scratching or it'll never heal
Let it lie in peace

Get out of the way, get out of the way
The brakes cannot last for long
He knows he must let it go
He knows but he keeps a hold
He touches her hand and it starts again

Moving so slowly
Prods it so gently
Urging its life to a peak to torment it again!
