My tender carrion
The damage has been done
From the depths of your heart
To the tip of my tongue
Not a word you can say
Can erase memories of that night
That awful night

It hides behind your eyes
I can feel it in my bones
It's come to tenderize us all
Tonight with sticks and stones

St. Anthony, this agony
It's eating at my soul
Much like nothing this world has ever known

I found a hiding place
Not far from here
They'll never find a trace
Of you and I my dear
In a world far away
We'd pass out from the pain
But not here
We feel it loud and clear

It hides behind your eyes
I can feel it in my bones
It's come to tenderize us all
Tonight with sticks and stones

St. Anthony, this agony
It's eating at my soul
Much like nothing this world has ever known
Nothing this world has ever known (known)

It's over now until it happens again
You haven't lived until you've seen suffering like this
It's over now until it happens again
You haven't lived until you've seen suffering like this
(Like this)
You haven't lived until you've seen suffering like

It hides behind your eyes
I can feel it in my bones
It's come to tenderize us all
Tonight with sticks and stones

St. Anthony, this agony
It's eating at my soul
Much like nothing this world has ever known
(Nothing this world has ever known)
Nothing this world has ever known (known)
