…is like a broken toilet

Mona Lisa: “Maybe it’s broken”

It’s the inability

It’s already started
It’s already started

It’s a barbed wire fence with spikes at the end
An ever changing reality you’d rather not attend
It’s an elevator way out of control
Going up and down your soul

It’s a battery almost empty
A congregation of children playing mummy and daddy
It’s the inability to flush the…
And yeah, baby, it hurts

It’s already started
Already broken-hearted

It’s a room where the air gets sucked out of
It’s sadomasochism but you can’t get enough
A tractor with its wheels stuck way in the mud
And all you can do is shove

It’s already too late when you realize
The ground is just as boggy on the other side
It’s the inability to flush the…
And yeah, baby, it hurts

– insane guitar –
– short acoustic guitar intermezzo –
– more insane guitar –

It’s a barbed wire fence with spikes at the end
It’s an elevator
It’s an elevator

It’s a battery, almost empty
It’s the inability to flush the…

It’s mummy and daddy
It’s sadomasochism
The ground is just as boggy, boggy, boggy, boggy-oggy-oggy

It’s the inability
It’s the inability (the inability)
The inability to flush that sucker

And yeah, baby, it hurts
And yeah, baby, it hurts
And yeah, baby, it hurts

– tormented screams –

Vinny: “Is that what you’re saying, it’s broken?”
Mona Lisa: “Yeah, that’s it, it’s broken.”
