lyrics

hold me backwards
let me run
I have people
I have none
people ugly
treat you mean
hate them mostly
but not complete

and when I'm on a break
you solo on a takamine
like you do

and if we speak
with too much speech he'll run
but if we speak
with just enough
he'll lead me back to you

lock me outward
let me in
love you sometimes
never win
keep me hungry
leave me full
never push me
never pull

and when I'm on a break
you solo on a takamine
like you do

and if we speak
with too much speech he'll run
but if we speak
with just enough
he'll lead me back to you
