I drag my loathsome carcass everywhere I go
Inside I am Dead because in my head, I KNOW!
Opposites attract and Opposites repel
Oh how it makes my head start to swell
I need not be perfect, I’m not, I believe
Yet every time I hear it, I start to grieve
Expect and demand, but fulfill I will not
You try with your web, but I’ve broke through the knot
Then comes a noose, but again, I’m not hangin’
Against your closed door, your head will be bangin’
Dear husband of mine, you can’t hurt me
Dear husband of mine, Go, Desert me
To you I shall cling to no more
Shut me out, change the lock, close the door
You challenge, compete, and drag down
Think its time to find me a new town
Tell me now, and tell me true
What is it that makes your eyes blue?
Are they swollen up with pain?
Did someone want to cause you shame?
Try to hide, try to hide – can’t find a place
Try to run, try to run – or is it time to face?
The time to love is all done
Fight ‘til the finish…’til the battle is won
The time to submit will be never
Victory is what I endeavor
No blame can be felt, there’s no shame
Look in the mirror for someone to blame
It isn’t my fault and never was
I was born and belong to the cause
Kick me, bad mouth me, and turn on T.V.
I’ll still be skipping merrily and shouting with glee
We don’t get along, and did we ever?
What is the use in staying together?
I don’t love you because you don’t love me
Tweedle dee, Tweedle dee, Tweedle dee dee!
You say, “Me First”, and I call you an “ASS”!
But who was the first one to be crass?
I’ve had it, won’t take it – I’m bored with the thing
Go alone by yourself…you don’t see what I bring.
