Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Use my lightning
like scissors

Like I cut the legs
off the whales

Dinosaurs into lizards"
And then he grabbed up
some bolts

He let out a laugh
Said, "I'll split them
right down the middle

Gonna cut them
right up in half"

And the storm clouds
gathered above

Into great balls
of fire

And then fire
Shot down from the sky
in bolts

Like shining blades
of a knife

And they ripped
right through the flesh

Of the children
of the sun

And the moon
and the earth

And some lndian god
Sewed the wound up
into a hole

Pulled it round
to our bellies

To remind us
the price we pay

And Osiris,
and the gods of the Nile

Gathered up a big storm
to blow a hurricane

To scatter us away
In a flood
of wind and rain

A sea of tidal waves
To wash us all away
And if we don't behave
They'll cut us down again
And we'll be hopping around
on one foot

Looking through
one eye

The last time
I saw you

We'd just split
in two

You was looking
at me

I was looking
at you

You had a way
so familiar
