Cut With The Cake Knife

Bryson/McDowall

The day begins again and more
Some things have passed and lay ??
Closer to me now than before
And I will take you by the hand
And lead you to my sunny side
And I will cut you with the cake knife
Right between the eyes
Lead you through the layers to
Show what lies inside

Beside me, inside me, underneath
Existing inside my inside me
There's something yet still to be unleashed
And I will take you by the hand
And lead you to my sunny side
And I will cut you with the cake knife
Right between the eyes
Lead you through the layers to
Show what lies

Closer to you now than before
And I will take you by the hand
And lead you to my sunny side
And I will hack* you with the cake knife
Right between the eyes
Lead you through the layers to
Show what lies inside

Cut you with the cake knife
Right between the eyes
Lead you through the layers to
Show what lies
Cut you with the cake knife
Right between the eyes
Lead you through the layers to
Show what lies inside
Cut you with the cake knife
Right between the eyes
Lead you through the layers to
Show what lies
