Lyrics Edit

When you died I heard the cries
In the night of your soul
Leaving the deformed flesh that shamed your mind
All of those years your bones wept
But now there is no skin left
The worms have eaten it
You’re free to go

And I will take your bones
And with them build a home, home

Burdened at birth inside of
A face no mother could love
She let them shame you like animal
They broke your limbs and beat in
Your swollen head 'til your neck
Shattered to pieces they put in the ground

And I will take your bones
And with them build a home, home

Gooble, gobble, gooble, gobble
We accept you, we accept you
One of us
Gooble, gobble, gooble, gobble
We accept you, we accept you
One of us
Gooble, gobble, gooble, gobble
We accept you, we accept you
One of us

I hear your soft bones crying
I hear your soft bones crying
I hear your soft bones crying in the night

(The Elephant Man)
I am not an animal! I am not an animal! I am a human being!
