I'm closing up, I'm shutting down, I took a vow of silence.
You won't hear me from now on, you'll only see the violence.
I put some water into a pot and brought it to a boil.
I poured it on my arm without any reflex of recoil.
I made sure it'd miss my hand,
'cause I need it to play in a band.
I thought I would scream,
But I didn't feel a thing.
Then I took some ice and the sharpest knife, and brought 'em to my room.
I sat there thinking of you and what I ought to do.
Then I picked a spot and numbed it up, 'cause carving can take some time,
Then I dug your name out of my skin, 'cause in my head, you're in my...mind
Wo! I realized with some urgency, that all this is child's play.
I need to learn to speak in a more effective way.
But just what is the desired effect and why have I been stalling?
I want you to feel it, watch me now, I'm calling.
Over at the hospital, they will dress my wounds,
But they won't really heal, until they're touched by you.
Watch Me Now, I'm Calling Lyrics
