Backstabbers 03:59
I was born out in a borough I was born inside a void I was looking out for something that couldn't be destroyed Running through the city with somebody else's sins Well, all I really wanted was just somewhere to begin Well they stab you in the back and they wanna see you crack And they say you'll go to heaven in a brand new Cadillac They wanna see you hurt, and they treat you just like dirt And you soon find out that life is just a four-letter word I was dealing with a feeling like a poor boy on the line I was 16 years old in an A state of mind. I was hanging out at Playland with some kids from Ozone park Playing computer games and learned to kill like a shark Well they stab you in the back and they wanna see you crack And they say you'll go to heaven in a brand new Cadillac. They're giving you a script and they wanna see you trip But you spit the poison out cause you're sick of being sick Hey,tell me what do want Tell me what do you want from me Hey,tell me what do want Tell me what do you want from me Well I made an appointment cause I needed some advice But the doctor and the dealer man were charging the same price They say they want my body but they can't touch my soul I am gonna keep my distance, man, and play some rock and roll But they stab you in the back and they want to see you crack And they say you'll go to heaven in a brand new Cadillac They tell you it's a sin but they want to stick it in And all you ever wanted was just some where to begin Hey, tell me what do you want What do you want from me I've seen some roll over Some just grow colder And turn to stone I won't be broken I won't be stolen I'll let it roll

Waiting by the side of the road For day to break so we could go Down into Los Angeles With dirty hands and worn out knees I keep crawling back to you I keep crawling back to you The ranger came with burning eyes The chambermaid awoke surprised Thought she'd seen the last of him She shook her head and let him in Hey baby, there's something in your eyes Tryin' to say to me That I'm gonna be alright if I believe in you It's all I want to do It was me and my sidekick He was drunk and I was sick We were caught up in a barroom fight Till an Indian shot out the lights I'm so tired of being tired Sure as night will follow day Most things I worry about Never happen anyway I keep crawling back to you I keep crawling back to you
