lyrics

I'm hit and I'm down and they're counting but I'm only resting my vision. You got me good and my eyes are still adjusting to my newest situation. I've got blisters and scars on my knuckles from kneeling.
I see stars and two of every two of you when I sleep.

But when the swinging begins again I'm in and singing at the top of my lungs.
I've got secret weapons that'll cave you in so wear head gear, my love.
I can take the whip.

I can take the reigns and ride this little pony back home and all over you. My suits gonna change out for one much less phony really soon.
I've got blisters and scars on my knuckles from kneeling.
I see stars and two of every two of you when I sleep.

But when the swinging begins again I'm in and singing at the top of my lungs.
I've got secret weapons that'll cave you in so wear head gear, my love.
I can take the whip.

I hope you are ready for the drudgery.
I hope you are ready for the grudgery.
I want to thank you, you're a treasure when you're above me.
I never would have got out if it weren't for all your shoving.
I hope you like the feel of my new gloves.
I stitched them out of grey matter and love.
I can take the whip.

So if this one's it why are we not selling it?
If it's the shit howcome I'm not smelling it?
Had you given me three more minutes we could have turned this whip into a lovely hit.
