Machine Head - Take My Scars Lyrics

Machine Head The More Things Change... cover art

It's been around for a thousand years
And it'll be here for plenty more
It is the face hidden in disgrace
That has become now an open sore

It is a false messiah
It is the face of pain
The bringer of the bittersweet
The heretic insane

Take my scars
Through hands of God
I found a better way
To break the walls

Fed all the lies and desensitized
Taught to believe that it is the way
Taught to divide and exactly why
You'll never understand my rage

You've never had to borrow
You've never had to steal
You eat it with your silver spoon
For me it's real

Take my scars
Through hands of God
I found a better way
To break the walls

Blood and concrete
Piss and wine
Whores that ****
To feel divine

They'll clean their needles
In their shrine
In ignorance
It's bliss you find

Why can't you
****in' open
Open up your eyes
