Take It Back 04:22
the silent storm of anger kicked ... a whole right through my stomach wall and then I blamed it all on you now while I clean my horse’s stall I take it back, I take it back I take it back, take it back It made such perfect sense to me but “thicker than a brick” is wide was dense as dense as dense could be so dense was left no sense inside I take it back, I take it back I take it back, take it back like when I misconstrued events misrepresented my intents when on that wide projection screen ... made you review my wildest schemes I take it back, take it back I take it back, take it back (Break) I take my boots, my cowboy hat ... my branding iron, and after that... to all I own, I now confess it’s time what’s mine, i repossess I take it back, take it back I take it back, take it back

your such a hard person to shop for hard person to know how to please I always think “what’I get you that for maybe you’d rather one of these every Christmas, every Easter, in every magazine I searched for the uniquely unique in a Colorado canyon I hide 3 jellybeans that the peak of my creative streak there are groves of trashy trinkets that symbolize you and faces held captive in clay and scratched in a rock in my back yard and there my whole lifetime you’ll stay (Break) and my guitar, my songbook of memories of summers on the beach at Cape Cod and my religious, indignant summaries of time, space travel, and god but my treasures of ineptness so meager and what I bought at the mall all display that I’m killing to be willing and able to heap on you all of my praise yes my guitar, my songbook of memories of summers on the beach at Cape Cod and my religious, indignant summaries of time, space travel and god but my treasures of ineptness so meager and what I bought at the mall all display that I’m killing to be willing and able to heap on you all of my praise Amen
