Submit Corrections Cancel

Time provides the rope but love will tie the slipknot
And I will be the chair you kick away
You don't even like anything you like or the people you know
And all of your reasons to stay alive died

I dedicate this song to you
For all the desperate things you made me do
I'd like to beat you black and blue
For all the agony you have put me through

Front seat stained with love, a back seat full of bibles
Purloined from the drawers of lost motels
They say when you're older you'll understand, you know it's a lie
'Cause you've got a twisted and mangled heart

I dedicate this song to you
For all the desperate things you made me do
I'd like to beat you black and blue
For all the agony you have put me through

Down route 66, you pilfered love and green stamps
W.C. Fields with Mae West in your eyes
They say every clock's a blunt instrument, crushing the skull
But you've got a vise to rest your head in

I dedicate this song to you
For all the desperate things you made me do
I'd like to beat you black and blue
For all the agony you have put me through
