I left you just enough I left you just enough to live You left me just enough Just enough to irritate my skin And I keep coming back for more I want you so bad but for now My hands are still here I wished you nothing but I wished you nothing but the best You still keep wishing me All the things that irritate my skin And I keep coming back for more I want you so bad but for now My hands are still here

All the vows you took so lightly All my strings you pulled so tightly I put a ring on your dead finger I put a ring on your dead finger And I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go Oh my heart that I never owned All my fears you turned to stone I pull my heart off the bathroom floor I pull my heart off the bathroom floor And I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go Wonʼt you stay a little longer Wonʼt you stay a little longer I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go Wonʼt you stay a little longer Wonʼt you stay a little longer Pull the ring off my dead finger Pull the ring off my dead finger I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go I know what I know Iʼll go Iʼll go

Whatʼs the deal with the southern states I donʼt know She went ahead and changed the license plates I know this for sure Iʼm going to walk to California Itʼs a long way they try to warn you And off she goes Iʼm riding away into a sunset of woe How I ended up in Mexico I donʼt know If I could get out of this bed Iʼd go I know this for sure Iʼm going to walk to California Itʼs a long way they try to warn you And off she goes Iʼm riding away into a sunset of woe

All drugged up and no place to go Feel most alive when weʼre a little bit cold You can be the one to push me over Prop me up loaded in the corner Itʼs a stagger to the top Of the stairs to get the rock You can be the one to roll me over You can be the one to roll me over I found love but I didnʼt want it She found love but she couldnʼt swallow Everybodyʼs here but we couldnʼt be bothered Naked on the floor with the preacherʼs daughter Sheʼs high it makes her spit Iʼm high I throw up a bit You can be the one to roll me over You can be the one to roll me over We got uppers we got downers Late nights with strange encounters On the floor like a holy roller Give me high hopes when you call me over Call a doctor call a nurse Call a hearse if it gets much worse You can be the one to roll me over You can be the one to roll me over Prop me up loaded in the corner You can be the one to roll me over You can be the one to roll me over

I donʼt love you I never did I made it up Since you made me live Pick up the pieces Iʼm better without Better than ever Since you let me out Come into my house Youʼre under my roof Do not delude me Cause Iʼm living proof That one can be free And still live in sin Iʼm into the night If you lay hands Iʼll kill you myself Doesnʼt matter to me If I live on the shelf If I recognize you I've nothing to loose You lose it all If I make you choose Hey little sister Live without fear Everyone loves you Everyoneʼs here Fall asleep And when you cannot Go into the night Without fear

I never dream, Iʼve no escape I take amphetamine, it keeps me awake But it traps me in So I drink for fear Iʼll think too much And Iʼm already late For the great escape To conquer all, itʼs too much for me I wanted it all, Iʼm barely on my feet I grasp the edge But you know Iʼd rather Just let go And Iʼm already late For the great escape I like to be on time, I never worry I hate to wait in line, Iʼm always in a hurry But I stick it out For fear Iʼll miss you When you come around And Iʼm already late For the great escape

Talk to me softly So nobody knows The faces are coming Theyʼre getting so close So wonʼt you take me back Wonʼt you love me once again Wonʼt you take me back Wonʼt you love me Well itʼs all for you my love What Iʼm gonna do, what Iʼm gonna do Well itʼs all for you Donʼt take me lightly You know what I know When everythingʼs frightening You know where to go So wonʼt you take me back Wonʼt you love me once again Wonʼt you take me back Wonʼt you love me Well itʼs all for you my love What Iʼm gonna do, what Iʼm gonna do Well itʼs all for you The voices they rattle Outside of my head And the faces get louder As we sleep in their beds So wonʼt you take me back Wonʼt you love me once again Wonʼt you take me back Wonʼt you love me Well itʼs all for you my love What Iʼm gonna do, what Iʼm gonna do Well itʼs all for you

What are you here for Well haven't you been warned The longer you stay the more I throw away What are you here for Catch yourself coming through the door Those doors they were never locked before

Iʼm getting old before my time Itʼs no fun but neither am I If I die before I break Hold on I donʼt believe in any light Hold on Down on my face where I belong Your love once served to keep me strong Through the sink hole of my mind Hold on I donʼt believe in any light Hold on Please donʼt retrieve me, let me go My breath is gone and my body's cold I donʼt believe in any light I donʼt believe in any light

When you smoke it shows When you start going down you need me the most I canʼt prolong the stroke And Iʼve hear it only takes one more With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns A foot in the door I'm only having one more it's all I can afford And with the will that we got Weʼll just them rot With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns With the stains and the burns and the caffeine urns Keep me in mind I want to stay inside Keep me in mind I want to stay inside Itʼs only reckless if you canʼt handle shit And I donʼt mind helping you find it Its only reckless if you canʼt handle shit And I donʼt mind helping you find it Keep me in mind I want to stay inside Keep me in mind I want to stay inside
