Lyrics


I'm under the rug
With the dust 
The dust of her promises
She works out the bugs
I'm just
I'm just one of them

Still she can't find the words
To tell me to get lost
Baby lose me now
And make me proud
Baby lose me now
And make me proud

I was her God
Her faith
Her faith failed to care
Now I'm her dog
I follow her
Follow her everywhere

Still she can't find the conscience
To tack me to the cross
Baby nail me up
And make me proud
Baby nail me up
And make me proud
Baby nail me up
And make me proud

I'm tired of reading your horoscope
Searching for parallels
I've swallowed your lies like it was dope
The slack felt so swell
But if you keep feeding me this rope
There'll be enough to hang myself
Myself
Myself 

Baby nail me up
And make me proud
Baby nail me up
And make me proud
Baby nail me up
And make me proud
