Back Against the Wall
Tonight I'll have a look and try to find my face again
Buried beneath this house, my spirit screams and dies again
Out back a monster wears a cloak of Persian leather
Behind the TV screen I've fallen to my knees

I said you got me where you want me again and I can't turn away
I'm hanging by thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in-between the shadows of my yesterday
I want to get away, I need to get away

Blanket of silence makes me want to sink my teeth in deep
Burn all the evidence of fabricated disbelief
Pull back the curtains, took a look into your eyes
My tongue has now become a platform for your lies

I said you got me where you want me again and I can't turn away
I'm hanging by thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in-between the shadows of my yesterday
I want to get away, I need to get away

Now, you know
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
Oh God, I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down, like a sittin' duck just waiting for the fall
You know, yeah, you got my back against the wall

Deep in the jungle camouflaged by all the fallen leaves
A hand holds up the sky while shamefully I make my plea
The alter's callin' but my legs won't seem to stand
Guess I'm a coward scared to face the man I am

I said you got me where you want me again and I can't turn away
I'm hanging by thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in-between the shadows of my yesterday
I want to get away, I need to get away

Now, you know
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
Oh God, I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down, like a sittin' duck just waiting for the fall
You know, yeah, you got my back against the wall

Now, you know
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
Oh God, I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down, like a sittin' duck just waiting for the fall
You know, yeah, you got my back against the wall
