lyrics

I kept throwing lumps of me at you
a heedless man’s bait
And then I let you off the hook again
and you swiftly finned away

I kept throwing lumps of me into
your pond of idle hope
And you, you lovely duckling
threw me just enough rope

For me to hang myself with
while you hang on every word
So ill-at-ease, yet eloquently
singing like a bird

Singing like a bird,
or more precise a sitting duck
A cross-eyed marksman’s target practice
three shots for a buck

I can give you what you want
But that ain’t what you need
I will turn you inside out
But I won’t sing you to sleep

Resentment you may feel for me
is stemming from remorse
You eager beaver busy bee
You’re beating a dead horse 

Resentment you may feel for me
is stemming from your own
resentment of your boundaries
and how fuzzy they’ve become

The thought it cast a shadow
made you feel weak in the knees
The finger that you’re pointing now
in fact belongs to me

No, baby you’re no angel
There ain’t no way you can please
everybody out there
so just stick to pleasing me

‘Cause I can give you what you want
though it ain’t quite what you need
I will turn you upside down
but won’t sing you to sleep
