Lyrics

You like to say you know what you want
But maybe you should want what you need.
You just take and you take
Until you take it all.
But you never leave nothing for me.
I used to think I liked you a lot
But you always kept me tied to your string.
You would make me wait
Until the party was over
And then you wouldn’t give me a thing.

You piss and you moan
After the money’s all gone
And then you cry
Cry yourself back to sleep
You act so surprised
But you don’t realize
To keep what you have
You have to know what to keep.
You really think that you’re living
But baby you just barely surviving
But on the day you start giving
You will see just what I mean

You like to say you know what you want
But maybe you should want what you need.
You just take and you take
Until you take it all.
But you never leave nothing for me.

You push and you shove
Because you can’t get enough
And then you piss is all away in the breeze.
You’re packing your nose
But as far as it goes.
It’s a hole that runs
So very deep.
Don’t act so surprised
Like you didn’t see it coming.
Like you don’t have a clue.
You’ve been cheating the system
Always playing the victim.
It’s funny baby,
But the joke is on you

You like to say you know what you want
But maybe you should want what you need.
You just take and you take
Until you take it all.
But you never leave nothing for me.

All rise.
Court is now in session.
The honorable judge Mark Prentice residing.
Will the defendant rise?
Please state your case.
Has the jury reached a verdict?
Let the sentencing begin.

You like to say you know what you want
But maybe you should want what you need.
You just take and you take
Until you take it all.
But you never leave nothing for me.
I used to think I liked you a lot
But you always kept me tied to your string.
You would make me wait
Until the party was over
And then you wouldn’t give me a thing.

One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever!!”
