Tired

Born Again Again - Bread and Circus

Play Tired

Pretty baby
you know that just ain’t right
the way you follow me around
looking for a fight

this ain’t really what I had in mind
when you and me we started
spending time together baby

Now we stay up all night with the TV
in between me and your ma
what’s it gonna be

So take your momma
and all of her shoes
I’m sick of her staring at me
while she’s talking to you

I’m so tired
of your lies
so sick and tired
of your mind

Now rumors say
you’re gonna take another fool
well you can go ahead
and drink his money too

Promise that you’ll stick around
’til the very end
but when that money’s gone
he’d better think again
now baby

All day long
with them clouds around your head
chain smoking GPCs and talking shit
you’re barking orders
and putting people down
but this room’s empty
take a good look around
now baby

I’m so tired
of your lies
so sick and tired
of your mind

I’m so tired
of your lies
so sick and tired
of your mind

Seven days a week
lying around wagging your finger at me saying
get up sit down get out come back no don’t do that
well I can’t breathe and I ain’t too proud to beg so baby please help me off of my knees
You got me on the ropes in your plastic boots with your DG hat
and your siamese poodle and your hairless cat oh why did I ever pay for that
I caught you a Moonpie down in Mobile at the Mardi gras
I bought you all the fuji apples in the Fall
but they still don’t make you happy no not at all no not at all
… I’m lying in the gutter … but I’m staring at the stars …

Scarecrow

Born Again Again - Bread and Circus

Play Scarecrow

It ain’t the paranoia that kills
or the Chinese placebo pills
or the way you get your cheap thrills
in the morning

Lord I have sinned
since I don’t know when but
it wasn’t my fault
no it wasn’t

This world boxed me in
yeah it boxed me in
sent me round the bend
without warning

Sometimes it’s safer in chains
than chasing a ghost in vain
you follow that line
to a door that ain’t open

Sometimes it’s safer in chains
freedom is a hard won thing
you follow that line
to a door that ain’t open

Scarecrow in the corn
another man done gone
he followed the law
but it broke him

Shining like the rain
on a windowpane
her eyes are words never spoken

Sometimes it’s safer in chains
than chasing a ghost in vain
you follow that line
to a door that ain’t open

Sometimes it’s safer in chains
freedom is a hard won thing
you follow that line
to a door that ain’t open

Sometimes it’s safer in chains
than chasing a ghost in vain
you follow that line
to a door that ain’t open

Sometimes it’s safer in chains
freedom is a hard won thing
you follow that line
to a door that ain’t open
