Choke Cherry.

Choke Cherry

One more toy to take
they say it will not hurt him
they say they will treat him Lovingly
but they stay to suck the joy from him

suck it down suck it down suck it down
the way you finish fruit
it always leaves you hungry

One more toy for the boy
it's one more way
to make him pay
for all these things that he will never be.

One more joy to take
they say it will not harm her
they say she will give it Lovingly
they say it'll make her stronger

she's giving in
she's beaten back
she's fucking up
she's fighting back
she needs a tool and she needs it now
here's to uneducated labour
and some help from alcohol
no she don't need no time to hone him
she just needs to make him strong

I was born to be a weapon
I was born to be a saviour
I was born to be a comment
on some other guy's behaviour
I can run and jump and hide and climb and climb and climb

One more to toy to break
that thing is always screaming
the telephone is
off the hook
with creditors and debitors
and people with their dying needs

You're one more toy for me to flay
cause I am so much older than I ever thought I'd Live
to be

I was born to be a star
Some bullfighting hero
I'm here to save us all
and I'm sorry you ever had to see me fall

It's a 9mm automatic
it caught 20 in the back on the run
never thought a boy that young could have it
never thought a boy could be so dumb
you know you can empty those things in 7 seconds
maybe quicker if you're faster with your finger on the trigger
knowing no-one never ever need to leave this room alive
spit the clip
jack one in
check the mirror and shoot again
and shoot again

I hear revolution is the answer
to fight with all your might
both sides have got the ammo
both sides have got the right
we can take it street by street
slow just like a Lover
every man is an oppressor
every man is just a soldier
lock and load for peace man
it's just the fight I've always dreamed of

I was born to be a falling star
in the ring to save this failing world
and I'm sorry
yah I'm sorry
you ever had to see me fall.
