lyrics

I walked the walk into the fire. I bled red blood for your voyeuristic pleasure. I walked the plank into the pyre. You are my witness, I laid my soul bare on your sacrificial table. I don’t sing anymore cos I don’t want to share my life with you. I don’t sing anymore cos the deeper I cut, the less there is to show. I took the stand and came clean, confessed my sins for your voyeuristic pleasure. I testified to my lies. I was your witness to painful regrets for your passive catharsis. I dug so deep for whatever was in me that might not have been heard before. But no one cares when the sonic martyr dares. “What is this? I ain’t never heard it before. Out the door.” I don’t sing anymore cos I don’t want to share my life with you. I don’t sing anymore cos the deeper I cut, the less there is to show. I told the tale of my life, exposed mistake for your educational pleasure. But tales of caution run dry. If you could witness the hubris and folly, as if I’ve learned nothing. O how I’ve tried to improve my lot in life, but it seems the joke is all on me, lost in the weeds. Well it may be that the truth will set you free, I wouldn’t know because I’m miles away, bored with the chase. I don’t sing anymore cos I don’t want to share my life with you. I don’t sing anymore cos the deeper I cut, the less there is to show.
