lyrics

old friend
have you seen my daughter
looked high and low and
still I'm without her

old friend
where is my daughter
like nothing's left
she's a shell filled with water

maybe I'll start with her lips
decipher the words and marks on her hips
maybe I'll read her face
follow the lines and each step retrace
maybe I'll muddle her mind
wipe out details
and put all this terror behind
give her the gift to rewind

old friend
where is my daughter
did you take my sweetest lamb out to slaughter

maybe I'll start with your eyes
pluck out one for each of your lies
that went by far too quick
I will whittle each bone down to a stick
maybe I'll flay you alive
cut tip to tail and pull out all that's inside
I'll tan your traitor hide

old friend
where is my daughter
like nothing's left
she's a shell filled with water
