Satisfied

Album: Bad as Me (2011)
  • When I'm gone
    When I'm gone

    Roll my vertebrae out like dice
    Let my skull be a home for the mice
    Let me bleach like the bones on the beach
    I'll be hard like a pit from a peach
    Now the ground has a branch
    Now the hound has a ranch

    The old tressel's just junk
    The Edsel is on blocks
    The old said so won't talk
    I'm a blimp that's straining, cut 'er ties
    I'm a moth in training, flutter by
    Huh

    When I'm gone
    When I'm gone

    I said I will have satisfaction
    I will be satisfied
    I said I will be satisfied
    When I'm believing: satisfaction
    When I'm grieving: satisfaction
    When I'm shaking: satisfaction
    When I'm praying: satisfaction
    When I'm staying: satisfaction
    When I'm carousing
    When I'm a thousand

    I said I will have satisfaction
    I will be satisfied
    Before I'm gone
    Before I'm gone
    I will have satisfaction
    I will be satisfied
    I will have satisfaction
    I will be satisfied

    Now Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards
    I will scratch where I've been itching
    Now Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards
    I will scratch where I've been itching

    Before I'm gone
    Before I'm gone
    Before I'm gone
    Before I'm gone

    Let me go back into the barrel
    Let the bullet go back into the barrel
    Let the bullet go back into the barrel
    Let the bullet go back into the barrel
    Before I'm gone
    Before I'm gone

    I said I will have satisfaction
    Let the bullet go back into the barrel
    Let the bullet go back into the barrel
    Take a left off the straight and the narrow
    Let the bullet go back into the barrel
