lyrics

So excited you can’t wait
anticipation raising your heart rate
skipping right into the lion’s den
only a moment before it begins

Antiseptic white and sterilized steel
spinning you around like a Ferris wheel

so simple the pleasure of pain
making everything else mundane
so simple the pleasure of pain
making everything else mundane

Heightened enlightenment from altered states
the gas that you breathe puts a smile on your face
knowing that next is the quick pinch of bliss
sharp in your mouth like a lover’s kiss

blood running red on the whites of your teeth
exciting your life in the night like a thief

so simple the pleasure of pain
making everything else mundane
so simple the pleasure of pain
making everything else mundane

The white of his coat soothes your unease
Relaxed on your back as he does as he please
He cradles his tools of immaculate construction
awaiting your fate for a joyful destruction

high pitched whine of the drill pressing down
rivers of happiness where you hope to drown

so simple the pleasure of pain
making everything else mundane
so simple the pleasure of pain
making everything else mundane
