Pumping your blood  Pumping blood
 Pumping your blood  Pumping blood
 Pumping blood
 Pumping blood
 Pumping blood
 Pumping blood

If I pump out blood in the sunshine 
Oil on the wheel 
That is blasted and busted away
A nail or a little piece of glass 
A little piece of glass 
A little piece of glass  Swarming like bees over the air
Off the pump off the thing 
The blood that I'm pumping away

Off the pump
Off the thing 
The blood that I'm pumping away
Off the pump
Off the thing 
The blood that I'm pumping away
If I pump blood in the sunshine 
And you wear a leather box with azaleas 
And I pump more blood 
And it seeps through my skin
Will you adore the river 
The stream, the trickle 
The tributary of my heart 
As I pump more blood 
And it seeps through my skin
Will you adore the river 
The stream, the trickle 
The tributary of my heart 

If I'm pumping blood
Like a common state worker 
If I waggle my ass like a dark prostitute  Would you think less of me
And my coagulating heart
 Waggle my ass like a dark prostitute  Coagulating heart
 Pumping blood
Come on James!

 Would you top me off
 Would you top me off as I deepen a curtsy  While you yell out, "mercy"
We grow apart  Would you rip and cut me
Use a knife on me

Be shocked at the boldness 
The coldness of this little heart
Tied up in leather  Would you take the measure 
Of the blood that I pump
In the manic confusion of love

 Supreme violation
 Supreme violation
"Oh, ah, ah, ah Jack I beseech you"
"Oh Jack I beseech you"
 Supreme violation
 Blood in the foyer 
The bathroom 
The tea room
The kitchen, with her knives splayed
I will swallow your sharpest cutter
Like a colored man's dick
 Blood spurting from me
"Oh Jack, Jack I beseech"
"Jack, I beseech you, I beseech"
In the end it was an ordinary heart
"Oh Jack I beseech you"
As I scream out my pain
In the end it was an ordinary heart
In the end, in the end, in the end
It was an ordinary heart
"Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack I beseech you"
 Supreme violation oh
"Jack, Jack, Jack I beseech you"
I call out your name

 Blood in the foyer, the bathroom,
The tea room, the kitchen 
And knives splayed
I swallow your sharpest cutter
Like a colored man's dick
 Blood spurting from me
 Blood spurting from me
"Oh Jack"
"Oh Jack, I beseech ya"
In the end it was an ordinary heart
In the end it was an ordinary heart
 Pumping blood
