Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Up and down on my legs my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages

These bandages cover more than scrapes, cuts and bruises from regrets and mistakes
I’ve been hoping your moping around the street again
I’ve been tripping from sipping the dripping dirty water tap
I’ve been poking a voodoo doll that you do not know I made
These bandages are anonymity
I’ve been shaking from making an awful decision
I’ve been running and running
Feels like my head is spinning round and round, around, around, around, around, around

Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Up and down on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages

I’ve been hoping your moping around the street again
I’ve been tripping from sipping the dripping dirty water tap
I’ve been poking a voodoo doll that you do not know I made
For you, of you, let’s see what needles do
I’ve been shaking from making an awful decision
I’ve been thinking I’m drinking too many drinks all by myself
I’ve been running and running
Feels like my head is spinning round and round, around, around, around, around, around

Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Up and down on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Bandages, bandages, bandages

Don’t worry now, don’t worry now, don’t worry cause it’s all under control
Don’t worry now, don’t worry now, don’t worry cause it’s all under control
Don’t worry now, don’t worry now, don’t worry cause it’s all under control
Don’t worry now, don’t worry now, don’t worry cause it’s all under control
Don’t worry now, don’t worry now, don’t worry cause it will all turn around,
Around, around, around, around, around, around, around

Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Up and down on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Bandages on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Up and down on my legs and my arms from you
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Bandages, bandages, bandages
Bandages, bandages, bandages
