Sew a Wire Smile

Sew a Wire Smile

Jaw trapped shut from stitching of steel
I can’t speak whatever’s on mind
No one knows, no one knows how I feel
Wrapped up tight in copper and iron

Rusting, and threatening to bleed
Cold, my mind I wish to flee

I am choked up on metal

Scream loud

Sew a wire smile

Let my words betray you well
You can’t know how deep I’m in hell
Perservere through this torrent of pain
Once I’m free there is some sort of gain

Rusting, and leaking with oil
Cold, the tight wire coils

I am choked up on metal

Scream loud

Sew a wire smile

I walk from town to town
I plunge the iron further
I take my words without worth
And let my actions teach you

Sew a wire smile

My only hope is you don’t get it
If you did you’d only mix in
Help me one last time if you please
Take these plier handles and squeeze

Contort my face into what you want
I would myself but you know I can’t
Take these stitches, twist and wrench
Bleed me further, rend me silent

Rusting, and finally at peace
Cold, yet with life a new lease

I am choked up on metal

Scream loud

Sew a wire smile
