Song Description

A man is hopelessly drawn to a woman. The woman is horribly wrong and destructive for him, but he simply cannot stop himself from taking her back again and again.

Lyrics

Got a chisel in my left hand hammer in my right
I'm taking the granite for granted this time
Finished my birthdate, the dash, and my name
She wore that little blue dress
to help me fill in today's date

Because she knows that
I have half a mind to take her back
Half a mind's just what I'd have to have

She's a mistake of a woman
Mistake of a woman I know
(she's a mistake)
She's a mistake of a woman
Mistake of a woman I know
(she's a mistake)
She's a mistake of a woman
but I'll make the mistake of succumbing
to that mistake of a woman
all over
over again

Like a mountain of broken mannequin limbs
It's hard to believe i was ever complete
She'll leave me for dead before she'll leave me for good
She gets far too much pleasure from watching me bleed

And she knows that
I have half a mind to take her back
Half a mind's just what I'd have to have

CHORUS

The Devil knew what he was doin when me made her
Shape of a lover. Compassion of a hand grenade
I've been down this road enough to know I have
But not enough to keep me from making my same mistakes

Because you know that
I have half a mind to take her back
Half a mind's just what I'd have to have

CHORUS
