Gotta get away, from this subject, oh there?s something, it?s really killing me, it?s gonna get to you, I?ll tell you one thing. It?s plain to see, that there?s something, all over nothing, just frustration, don?t start something, not with me.
We may fall. But we won?t run away.
Gotta get a grip, on this something, all over nothing, just frustration, gonna beat it out with some intellect. Better stay away, from a four-knuckle sandwich, kicking off a brawl which, never solved anything, I?ll tell you this.
But I?m standing fast, and I?m too damn proud, so I came alone.
And I am sitting, waiting for that stone, that you threw my way.
We may fall, but we won?t run away.
I could sail away. Rock it like a pirate, standing on a wooden leg, make you walk the plank, make you jump the ship. Better stay away, cause I?m running thin on patience, think I?m going ape-shit, might be taking turns going stick-for-stick.
