Sticky on a one side, slick on another Ripped to fucking shreds then spliced back together With tape, ooh with tape Rolling out from inside, hiding cracks and dividing lines Adhering to the surface, pasting over imperfections Like tape, ooh like tape And there's a big, big hole like a hole in the ground And where'e there's supposed to be a man, there's no man to be found There's a big, big hole like a hole in his head And if that's how it's gonna be, we'd be better of dead Sticky on a one side but completely invisible Forging into union that which was divisible Tape, ooh yeah tape Placed by many hands in the name of magic Covering up layer upon layer of the tragic Like tape, ooh like tape Cause there's a big, big hole like a hole in the ground And where'e there's supposed to be a man, there's no man to be found There's a big, big hole like a hole in his head And if that's how it's gonna be, we'd be better of dead There's a big, big hole where the sky's falling down But if noone's there to hear it, then it doesn't make a sound There's a big, big wreck but they make a decree And then they cover it up cause they don't want us to see Stretch it, cut it, stick it, cover it up (x6)
