Natural Law

Doing things I don't know anything about, trying to fit in where I don't belong
Never had reason to doubt 'til something better came along
Two people out at sea getting sick of each other
Avoid one catastrophe and you walk right into another

I don't keep a diary, I've never seen a shrink
If you assume it turns me on when you lie to me you're worse at this than you think
I blew my cover, she said I would
A bloodthirsty lover never did anyone any good

I'm underground, I've got sand in my head
Anyone standing around could end up in my bed

Caught up in a whirlwind, got her soft skin burned
I heard she's someone's girlfriend, guess I'll have to wait my turn
Put on your gloves and scrub me under a slow-turning fan
Don't tell me that you love me and then treat me like a backup plan

You can't stop getting older, pray you still have some friends
She quotes what I told her, I can never go back again
The hostel they got high in, the only time he ever slapped you
I wanted her to stop crying so I said what I had to

A Gideon Bible and a smoker's cough
Those who announce their arrival have always pissed me off

He's good enough for my daughter, his mother's always in the paper
As long as they live in the house I bought her he can tie her up and videotape her
I'll tell you how it's gonna be, I've thought it through
I can't pull myself out of my misery, I'm depending on you

There's a hole in my cup, fire in my shoes
Anytime his name comes up it's never good news
It was my turn to be free, I did what I wanted to do
You're not me, I don't care what happens to you

I can be forgiving of a certain flaw
She was just living by her natural law

She'll tell you I'm deranged, that's not the case
People act strange when they're not in the right place

Put no one above them whatever you do
Don't tell them you love them when it's no longer true
