lyrics

people ask me why are you limping?
I don’t know why am I limping?
my hips they never healed
maybe the joints are slowly disintegrating again
my skin has turgor but my bones are melting
will I find myself shrimp-backed over crutches
my legs splayed and strapped down when I sleep?
haunted by the healthy
take that from me
because in my house you’d find no sympathy
pick on the crippled boy, teasing
fuck you, hit you with my crutch
there was a billboard
I don’t know why I wouldn’t look at it
on the way to the orthopedic specialist
the heavy weights on me
the nurses hiding
my skin has turgor but my bones are melting
me and my mother would see the x-rays
the news, devastating
haunted by the healthy
take that from me
because in my room you’d find my brothers’ trophies
pick on the cripple boy, teasing
fuck you, hit you with my crutch
all the dark night spent
ripping out of the velcro
my brother Brian’s spit
Jep’s got me in a choke hold
