Bail Me Out

Bail Me Out
Bail Me Out
We do things that, sooner or later, result in suffering. Then when we're suffering, we pray for relief. Then we forget about the suffering and go right back and do things that, sooner or later, result in more suffering. Then when we're suffering, we pray for relief. Ad nauseam.

In my sights, lookin’ all right, eyes wanna jump right outta my head
Ain’t no good, I know I should sit tight but I get loose instead
Deep dark well, on the way to hell rushed in where wise men never tread
Realized too late and now I got a fate called “better off dead”

chorus:

Fruitive desirin’ causin’ memory to fail—Suddenly can’t live without
Fool in a whirlpool that I’m stirrin’ as I’m sinkin’
All my warning lights are blinkin’ on Come on down, Lord—bail me out

Stay up nights, nails are what I bite I got to get that crazy car
Forget about that debt, how ‘bout it? Aw, it’s gonna take me far
Turn a blind eye on my big goodbye forget that Golden Avatar
Chum that water, loan shark bait now feathers gonna stick to tar

(chorus)

Thrills that I get here—they don’t come near to what I wanna grab
It’s a Moby Dick, and I’m an Ahab—up a creek, I’m goin’ for rehab
Don’t bark and beg, got two legs got an opposable thumb
Man, a man is what I am and now I wanna act like one

(chorus)
