lyrics

Drug Mule

I never meant to think those thoughts
I never meant to do those things
It all unravels happening so fast
At first it was first now it’s last

Do I look like I need your help
Do I look like I need your advice?
I don’t need your fucking help

I need some time alone
With no bags strapped to my gut
Sick in my swollen gut

Stick it in pack it in keep it in keep it hid
Stick to the plan stick to the rule you’re a mule you stupid fool

I’m not going back
I’m not going back
You won’t take me!

I’m not coming back
I’m not coming back
You can’t make me!

I never meant to think those thoughts
I never meant to do those things
Testing theories, American cherries
Shaking, weeping, sighing, weary

Do I look like I know what I’m doing
Do I look like I have a clue
Constant shifts always moving

Privatisation
The sheer uneasy elation
Withdrawn, shaking
With a queasy sensation

Stick it in pack it in keep it in keep it hid
Stick to the plan stick to the rule you’re a mule you crazy fool

I’m not going back
I’m not going back
You won’t take me!

I’m not coming back
I’m not coming back
You can’t make me!
I never meant to think those thoughts never meant to do those things
Deep breathing, breathing deep
Slumber taking over sleep

Do I ever do as I say
Do I look like I know the truth
About what happened yesterday

It was just a series of lies
Deceit upon deceit
You just end up chasing your own tail
Trying to stay on your feet

Stick it in pack it in keep it in keep it hid
Stick to the plan stick to the rule you’re a mule you fucking fool
