Why are you telling me this?

There are various types of songs out there. Some fun, some sad... and some downright dodgy. Often it's not until you listen to the lyrics properly that you get just how off a song is.

This is one from the New Zealand group Strawpeople.

The knife is in my hand, but I, I won't cut your, I won't touch your, your beautiful skin.
Okay, I get that you are trying to be reassuring about this... but why do you feel the need to have a knife in your hand in the first place? And why all this talking about cutting? You are cutting me, aren't you? ("I won't dig too deep.") Yeah, please, no... stop that... ow... STOP CUTTING ME! ("Just close your eyes and go back to sleep.") I don't think so!
