Joey Shoji - Medic lyrics

Another year goes by; another transfer, and I go
To seek another world that holds no faces that I know
Another sky, another star—forgive me that I flee
You try to breach the barriers between yourselves and me

Now leave me to my silences and let me live apart
I'll heal your battered bodies; don't try to touch my heart

I know the things you say of me—you think that I don't hear
You call me ice and steel; well, how can you know I fear
The day that always comes that means my visit here must end—
The day I cease to heal the wound and start to heal a friend

So please don't offer me your hand, or sooner we must part
I'll heal your battered bodies; don't try to touch my heart

There was a time I didn't veil myself in homemade night—
When I had friends and lovers, and the days we shared were bright
But our ship fell and foundered in a stormy alien sky
And, amid the shattered wreckage, I could only watch them die

So please don't wake the memory or the pain it must impart
I'll heal your battered bodies; don't try to touch my heart

So I have worn my armor tight ever since that day
No love or friendship's worth the pain of tearing it away
As long as you are faceless, I can heal the hurts I see
As soon as you have faces, all your wounds cut into me

So let me wall you out and let no breaching ever start
I'll heal your battered bodies, only never touch my heart
