You set out well with your pale blue knives and ambition, in addition
Your golden blades keep them ranked like hives
to your greed and superstition
You'll cast them off if they lose their taste,
or come too close when you start the race
You got me just where I'm supposed to be,
in a heartache, in your heartache
You cut me down so I won't be free
in a harness, like a harness.
You say you want me now it's time to hide,
time for choosing swords and picking sides
It's been a year since you had some rest, running all day
And several more since you've made any sense,
but they're all there, like a big stare.
Your battles pick you when you dress in black
but then you put your track and I see the cracks.
See how they huddle like a drooling cult,
all set for battle with the zeal of faults
Like everything you wanted, it's everything you wanted,
everything you ever thought to -
Oo, I love your tears when you start sending out your signs, something's on your mind, baby
Oo, the coast seems clear but maybe it's only in your mind
A trick so simple that they're scared to look,
but rather close their eyes and bite the hook
