Lyrics
It's better than pleasure
It hurts more than pain
I've got what it takes to drive you insane
Now is the time to
Lose all control
Distort your body
Twist your soul
Contort yourself
Contort yourself
Hey baby you better twist it
You never never never resist it
Contort yourself
Contort yourself

Hey baby don't you stick together
And one of you just fall apart
You better try being stupid
Instead of smart
And once you take out all the garbage That's in your brain
Forget about your future
Its just just just just too tame
Contort yourself
OHHHHH
I said you got to
I said you got to
You got to
You got to
You got to contort yourself
At first you arrive
In position
And then you shatter your frame
And you stretch your resistance
Until your mind slips away
And once you forget your affection for the human race
Reduce yourself to zero and then you'll fall in place

Contort yourself one time
Contort yourself two times
Contort yourself three times
Contort yourself four times
Contort yourself five times
