Lyrics:

VERSE I
Deck me like an uppercut,
Wreck me like a pileup.
Move along there's nothing to see
You rubbernecker.
Thought I'd get a piece of you
And bit off more than I could chew,
Swallow, spit or sip through a straw--
You're indigestible.

PRECHORUS I
Got me by my throat--just squeeze

CHORUS
'Cause I already tried to leave
It's not so hard to stay
'Cause I'm already on my knees
It's not so hard to pray.

VERSE II
Dunk me like a tidal wave,
Dump me in a shallow grave.
Night of the Living Date!
We're incompatible
Lock and load like firearms
Shotgun wedding - what's the harm?
I could say "I do" or "I don't"--
It's immaterial.

PRECHORUS II
I'm not on your side or mine.

~ CHORUS ~

BRIDGE
I've been lost and found--have you seen me?
I've been gagged and bound, so why say please?

CHORUS II
'Cause I already tried to leave
It's not so hard to stay
'Cause I'm already on my knees
It's not so hard to come so far, so
Why don't I just stay?
