God! but this silence hangs heavy, it gives me a pain in the thigh 
What a weight on my shoulders..the atmosphere's colder 
No one gets out of life alive 
You just wear your umbilical cord like a noose and make believe it's a tie 

I got a mouth full of ulcers 
I'm digging my grave with my teeth 
This pain is silence beyond belief 
My gums bleed for you 

If this is god's gift, he can keep it 
I can't let myself forget about 
When I exaggerated the role of my coffee, my cigarettes 
I wear the mark of the iconoclast across my bleeding back 

I'll be reincarnated as a hermit.  (from under, the future looks black) 
I got a mouth full of ulcers 
I'm digging my grave with my teeth 
Can't stop thinking about my lip 

This pain is silence beyond belief 
Dying to an audience of one 
My gums are on fire for you 
I'm gonna grind myself into the ground and ground myself into the grind 

Keep turning the key to wind up and kill yourself to unwind... 
I got a mouth full of ulcers 
I'm digging my grave with my teeth 
Can't stop thinking about my lip?  this pain is silence beyond belief 

Dying to an audience of one.....my gums bleed for you 
The burgers are now mounting bethlehem and my gums are on fire for you
