lyrics

I keep on losing myself
I'm not under the rug
I'm not behind the curtain
I keep on losing myself
so I'm filling up the hole
by filling up my holes

And I don't know if I will be seen again
Yes I don't know if I will be seen, will be seen...

Doctor Doctor won't you please help me, I'm swollen
and tearing at the seams, I'm broken
won't you make this right
I'll put it on my credit card

I keep on losing myself
I'm not behind the clouds
or underneath the staircase
I keep on losing myself
so I'm dressing like a slut
because don't people like sluts?

And I don't know if I will be seen again
Yes I don't know if I will be seen, will be seen...

Doctor Doctor won't you please help me I'm swollen
and tearing at the seams, I'm broken
won't you make this right
I'll make it worth your while... if you let me

Stop rolling around raise a hallelujah
I just figured it out it's an early warning
What! what! Not right in the head?
You're a razor on my arm to slice at the threads
And, you're fraying at the edges, hiding on corners, discretely naked
blending into the air and I keep on losing, keep on losing myself

I'm not under the rug
I'm not behind the curtain...

Doctor Doctor won't you please help me I'm swollen
and tearing at the seams, I'm broken
won't you make this...

Doctor Doctor won't you please help me I'm swollen
and tearing at the seams, I'm broken
won't you you make this right
I'll put it on my credit card

I don't know if I will be seen again
Yes I don't know if I will be seen, will be seen...again!
