lyrics

ASK ME ANYTHING

I volunteer in an animal shelter
I’m a qualified female welder
I'm a deck-hand on a dredge in this river
I’m in a line—for how long—for a brand new liver
I’m an Amish that left my family
I’m a hard-ass broken by the military
I’m in a lab working with perfumes
Tornado warning, will it come soon!

You can ask me anything
The lines are open
You can ask me anything
If you’re whole or you’re broken

I am a radio tower technician
I’m a bored young Norwegian
I’m 18 with viral encephalitis
I’m an ex-stripper, now work for private clients
I went to high school in Thailand
I dream of stairwells and unassisted flying
I am a doorman, last leg of my shift
I’m a pile of leaves if you get my drift

You can ask me anything
The lines are open
You can ask me anything
If you’re whole or you’re broken

I’m a contractor in Afghanistan
I have Polymorphous Light Eruption
I am a face drawn on a hand
I’m a line drawn in the sand

You can ask me anything
The lines are open
You can ask me anything
Cos I’m whole and I’m broken
