lyrics

You Cannot Destroy Me

An interesting development, news has come to hand
With facts and figures the statisticians are helping me understand

I hope it wasn’t hard for you
Were you cringing under each caress?

Inadmissible evidence; the facts are on remand
Hindsight delivers a hundred shivers
I finally understand

And in the distance I can see another you
Another hurt, another joy to get through
I’ll take it on with no recourse to any law
You will not destroy me

A line of mucus sediment; a hair though just a strand
It’s the sound of a finger rubbing a trigger
I’d rather not understand

I wish I wasn’t hard for you
I’ve been cringing under each caress

And in the distance I can see another you
Another hurt, another joy to get through
I’ll take it on with no recourse to any law
You will not destroy me

An interesting development, news has come to hand
With facts and figures the statisticians are helping me understand

I wish I wasn’t hard for you
I’ve been cringing under each caress

And in the distance I can see another you
Another hurt, another joy to get through
I’ll take it on with no recourse to any law
You will not destroy me

You cannot destroy me

A prolific artist, Butcher has recorded over a 100 tracks and will cap off a decade of disturbing dirge by releasing a compilation of demos on Bandcamp. It promises to be as handsome as the man himself. He may have written his own bio. ... more
