Lyrics

Michael the Leper walks along the Eastern shore
His parents don’t want to see him anymore
Maybe he could catch a boat back to Berlin
But he doesn’t want his girl to see the state he’s in.

Oh me and this damn leprosy
I’m always falling to pieces whenever you’re before me.

Michael the Leper puts his fingers in a jar
And buries them inside the ground with his guitar
Picks up a picture that was taken years ago
The boy, he remembers. The face, he doesn’t know.

Oh me and this damn leprosy
I’m always falling to pieces whenever you’re before me.

You could make me your long lost lover
You could make me your long lost slave
Don’t you see that it does not matter?
I’ll still end up dying for you anyway.

Michael the Leper moves back to the Western hills
To share some sympathy with ghosts of those he killed
Removes some knitting thread from a dead girlfriend
And tries to sew his life back together again.

Oh me and this damn leprosy
I’m always falling to pieces whenever you’re before me.
Oh me, babe I’m so sorry
If I could hold myself together, you know I would be.
