Hand With a Missing Finger

Reaching Out For Pain

How can we help?

A hand for a hand.

Can I hold your wallet in my pocket?

Only for a moment.

Really, how can we help?

Coughing up the deluge, tie the rope up here.

Something free for the moment,

we're hiding in the current.

You're only hungry right now, take the smoking gun.

How can we help you? What do you want us to do?

Let us take your coat. Take off your god damned shoes.

Keep starving for that attention.

Just take our basic plan.

The pills will only hurt until forever.

Don't let those kidneys go to waste.

Just smash the face of the puppet.
