Recorded by Steve Albini at Chicago Recording Company, July 1990. Originally released as a SubPop Single of the Month.


Needles, masks and plastic curtains
Needles, knives and plastic surgeons
Medication from the nurses
Fill the forms for insurance
They won't tell me what is missing
Or what's left - nothing's left

Doctors kill without the killing
They can cut you with no feeling
Count the cracks up in the ceiling
Fill the cracks, control the bleeding
They won't tell me what is wrong
And what is right - nothing's right

There have been some alterations
There's a change in medication
There have been some complications
From the last two operations
They won't tell me what is missing
Or what's left - nothing's left
