Last Tattoo

Album: Graffiti The World (2005)
  • This will be my last tattoo
    To cover the memory of someone I thought I'd always need
    Cover her name with a smoking gun
    Make it hurt as much as possible and make it bleed

    Just can't take it no more feelin' numb
    Woke up face on the floor I was dumb
    Cut me all the way to the core morning comes
    Time to get busy forgetting again
    Tired of going out my mind
    Looking for something I won't find
    How could I have been so blind
    This is a load of crap
    It figures she would win
    But I'll learn to feel again
    Bear down hard when you fill it in
    Give me the pain I'll grit my teeth in

    This will be my last tattoo
    To cover the memory of someone I thought I'd always need
    Cover her name with a smoking gun
    Make it hurt as much as possible and make it bleed

    You know when I woke up this morning she was long good gone
    I thought she heard me say she was my vertebrae my back bone
    But bone the dawn feels wrong, the night ain't right
    The phone ain't on and she broke out last night
    Left a note sayin' she won't hang on, she just can't fight
    I know she's with Brock Scott, that jock with blonde locks
    That blocks shots, guess I'm just not that hot
    Mailbox for cocks
    Let him bust your rear cuz you don't trust my rap career
    But need I point out our bank account with a large amount
    You left in the bank you skank, what you think
    I'm a take this loot and buy some ink
    You can take that shit you talkin' with you walkin' hooker

    This will be my last tattoo
    To cover the memory of someone I thought I'd always need
    Cover her name with a smoking gun
    Make it hurt as much as possible and make it bleed

    Her face is still in my brain kill her name
    I'm still dealing with pain what a shame
    Heart still wearing a stain I'm to blame
    Little bitty guilty's crawling all over my soul
    I can't believe this shit
    Said I caused the things she did
    Bear down hard when you fill it in
    Give me the pain I'll grit my teeth in

    This will be my last tattoo
    To cover the memory of someone I thought I'd always need
    Cover her name with a smoking gun
    Make it hurt as much as possible and make it bleed Writer/s: Alexander Greenwald, Jason Schwartzmann
