Album: Story of Your Bones (2000)
  • What did you think when you gave that cat a call?
    Did you think It'd make me want you?
    Did you think It'd turn me on at all?
    Well that's exactly what it did
    that's exactly what it did not do.

    Did you think that I'd be so hypocritical
    as to have this gift and use it to be political?
    At this point, what I think's what I say
    So go on and burn me at yours
    'cause I got nothing left at stake

    That love you've got
    save it for your hands.
    You might act like one
    but keep it in your pants.

    Well that's exactly what you did
    That's exactly what you did not do
    Oh my patience, don't you abuse it
    See I got this gun
    and I'm waiting for an excuse to use it

    At this point, what I think's what I say
    So go on and burn me at yours
    'cause I got nothing left at stake

    Can't help it you're just more visually stimulated
    Strip bars and magazines
    stop, my stomach can't tolerate it
    Who made that lie?
    I can guess you know
    some ass in need of excuse
    to fuck around a hundred years ago

    My words are the weapons of ten thousand armies
    ripping my throat to rage with war
    that you can't understand
    so still you court me
    if not as the wife then
    at least as the whore

    So to your dismay
    I must confess
    that there is gall that drips
    from the curve of my breast.

    Did you think that I'd be so hypocritical
    as to have this gift and use it to be political?
    At this point, what I think's what I say
    So go on and burn me at yours
    'cause I got nothing left at stake
