So you think you’re well-travelled,
Not stuck to one path?
Well, have I got news for you my friend -
You’re sailing high seas
Without a fucking mast.
So you take your world samples,
Hold onto them tight,
‘Coz we don’t like no change around here!
We stay because it’s right -

My independence is fierce
But it’s not as pissed as you,
Don’t try to drag me down town
‘Coz I quite admire the view.
What is it good for,
How much of me can I fucking keep?
I’m your run-o’-the-mill ol’ lassie;
No different to the other sheep!
You’re a Rebound Ranger,
A Handsome fucking Stranger,
While my eyes are a weeping,
My integrity’s still keeping, scoring
Objectives all the time,
You are no longer mine,
This ‘lust’ does not run deep -
Over you I’ll lose no sleep!

Dig the hole,
Find the gold,
Don’t be sold,
Just be bold,
Use your fist
To get the gist,
To look from above,

So honey,
Please take my hand
And I’ll help you understand
That I’m not asking for much,
I just want you to touch me, feel me,
Everywhere I go,
I just want you to know
That my brain cannot stop ticking,
‘Coz you’re always fucking drinking!
My emotions bled dry,
And now you wonder why
That I am nowhere to be seen,
I am no longer keen
On my heart ripping from my chest,
I think I know what’s best,
I’m fucking done with this scene.

Throw it away!
Because we ain’t got a lot of time now.
Give it to me!
Coz I’m the only one that knows how.
Let it all out!
Because you’re only getting one more
Chance before I’m walking out the door.
