Lyrics[edit]

   i am the face of piss and shit and sugar
   i do a crooked little dance with my funny little monkey
   what i want, what i want is just your children
   i hate what i have become to escape what i hated being
   calliopenis envy from your daddy
   you're not gonna hear what he don't want to hear
   what i say disgusts him
   he wants to be me and that scares him
   "let's do a funny little dance with my funny little monkey"
   the black keys
   here is my real head, here is my real head
   i wear this fucking mask because you cannot handle me
   here is my real head
   they try to blink me not to think me
   don't want to bring me out
   i am the rotten teeth, my fists are lined with suckers
   my prison skin's an eyesore-mirror-sketch-pad
   i am your son
   your dad
   your fag
   i am your fad
   here is my real head, here is my real head
   i wear this fucking mask because you cannot handle me
   here is my real head
