  • Baby I can't please you I can't please you

    Every time you start to criticize
    I can see the misery in your eyes
    You say I make your pain
    You're trying to turn the blame all around you

    You take the words I say and make them mean
    Everything they don't baby you're obscene
    You don't listen you don't hear
    You're blinded by the fear that surrounds you

    I know you say love when you mean control
    You buy the truth and your heart is cold
    So you live in shadows

    You try to tell the world how it should spin
    But you live in terror with the hollow men
    Who stun you with their lies
    With fever in their eyes as they drown you
