Sadie Lyrics

by Alkaline Trio

You're on your own my little nightmare, you cannot stay here
It's far too bright for you
If they attack you just lay there
Play dead dear, it's your only hope of pulling through

And seconds they seem like a lifetime
A dream, recurring, a dream that can't come true
And they'll pin it all on you
After all you've been put through

Sadie G. she's crazy, see
That's what the white coats say
Now Ms. Susan A. you're losing
Every opportunity to put us all away

Now run along my little nightmare, your job is done here
You've scared them all to death
If they revive them just sit there
Just smile dear, make them thankful for every breath

The sentence may seem like a lifetime
A scream that's curdling, the blood they found on you
And your knives and clothing too
Charlie's broken .22

Sadie G. she's crazy, see
That's what the white coats say
Now Ms. Susan A. you're losing
Every opportunity

Well they found you and they shipped you up the river
The same way that you've bound and gaged, you've shot and stabbed
You tried to set them free but they've thrown away the keys

You represented a God to me that was so beautiful
That I'd do anything for Him, I'd do anything for God
Even murder, if I believed it was right
How could it not be right if it is done with love? Because He said it was
I have no remorse for doing what was right to me, I have no guilt in me
