The Blue Mask Lyrics

They tied his arms behind his back to teach him how to swim They put
blood in his coffee and milk in his gin They stood over the soldier in
the midst of the squalor There was war in his body and it caused his
brain to holler
Make the sacrifice
mutilate my face
If you need someone to kill
I'm a man without a will
Wash the razor in the rain
Let me luxuriate in pain
Please don't set me free
Death means a lot to me
The pain was lean and it made him scream he knew he was alive They put a
pin through the nipples on his chest He thought he was a saint
I've made love to my mother, killed my father and my brother What am I
to do
When a sin goes too far, it's like a runaway car It cannot be controlled
Spit upon his face and scream
There's no Oedipus today
This is no play you're thinking you are in What will you say
Take the blue mask down from my face and look me in the eye I get a
thrill from punishment
I've always been that way
I loathe and despise repentance
You are permanently stained
Your weakness buys indifference
and indiscretion in the streets
Dirty's what you are and clean is what you're not You deserve to be
soundly beat
Make the sacrifice
Take it all the way
There's no won't high enough
To stop this desperate day
Don't take death away
Cut the finger at the joint
Cut the stallion at his mount
And stuff it in his mouth
