lyrics

What did you do with the money I gave to you?
I’m going to want it back pretty soon
But you’re still smiling like boxer after a fight
Like a crocodile about to bite

You’re draggin your shadow through the dirty streets
Flashing your teeth like a midday show
You huff and puff and blow and you don’t seem to know that
Most of your friends have had enough

You can’t go and fuck it all up
And then pretend like everything’s okay
You can’t just swing like a wrecking ball
Then try to make amends
Believing that your world won’t break

Your tryin to find the words to say you’re sorry
But a word does not apology make
My sympathy is ending
My patience is bending out of shape
Whatever stops bending breaks

You can’t go and fuck it all up
And then pretend like everything’s okay
You can’t just swing like a wrecking ball
Then try to make amends
Believing that your world won’t break

So what did you do with the money I gave to you?
