lyrics

Of course I would be cynical
If I was in your shoes
To have reached the highest pinnacle
Then slipped between the pews

Battered, bruised and senseless from your fight
Hiding in the shadows from the light

And now your heart's just a little bit, heart's just a little bit hard
And you've been trying to figure out how not to put up your guard
But there is no answer I have found
That can keep you safe and sound

Of course I would be sceptical
If I'd seen what you'd seen
Like a steel-toe cap to the testicles
It brought you to your knees

Now you're looking and there's no wise men in sight
To help you tell the shadows from the night

And now your heart's just a little bit, heart's just a little bit hard
And you've been trying to figure out how not to put up your guard
But there is no anchor I have found
To keep your feet chained to solid ground

To show the world the dirt I keep beneath my fingernails
Is the only way I've found to keep my heart from turning stale
But now my hand are in my pockets, fists clenched tight
And I'm beginning to prefer the shadows to the light

And now my heart's just a little bit, heart's just a little bit hard
And I've been trying to figure out how not to put up my guard
So if there's an antidote you have found
That can draw this poison out

Then drip feed me slow
Drip feed me slow
Drip feed me slow
