lyrics

DIRTY (Give Them Me)

Your names are precious
give them me, give them me
Your eyes they shine
Give them me
Your fruits are bursting with the promise of nectar
dribbles down my chin, hangs just a moment
before it stains my shirt . . .

See I want to get dirty, dirty
I want to make a mess
I want to leave a permanent mark staying out after dark
I won’t settle for less
Gonna put em on notice, notice the folks drawing all the lines
gonna color outside in scribbles nice and wide
you can take it as a sign of the times

All of your dark secrets, give them me
All your heavy habits, give them me
All of your downward spirals, let it be
Don’t fight no more, it’s alright
‘cause every day needs a night...

All of your dark secrets, give them me
All your heavy habits, give them me
All of your downward spirals, let it be
Don’t fight no more, it’s alright
‘cause every day needs a night...
They got you holed up, cold-cocked,
shell-shocked, locked down, wound up tight

Just trying to put it to the question before we put it to the flame
I think it’s worth another look if you’re living by the book
thinking I’m the one to blame
So you got a box of old bones in your closet on your shelf
You know, the things you try to hide, they rot you inside
don’t blame me, you do it to yourself

All of your dark secrets, give them me
All your heavy habits, give them me
All of your downward spirals, let it be
Don’t fight no more, it’s alright
‘cause every day needs a night...
Oo, give them me.
