Cut Down

This song is by Sister Machine Gun and appears on the album Metropolis (1997).

Cut down to the bone
All I get is a name on a headstone
Never wander around in the daylight
I take it all the other suckers try to tell me it's alright
Whatever I do
It doesn't matter 'cause I can't please you
I don't need another trip to the ghetto
Everything I think about has gotta be let go
Down to the same old scene
I think of every little thing I've been
And I don't know what's going on
But the things that I do know are all wrong
And you're better than me, it's easy to see
You're twice whatever I could be
I never thought that I would need someone to set me free

Cut down
In the middle of a big old lie
Cut down
Everything is gonna be all right
Cut down
What am I supposed to do
When everything depends on you?

Cut down
In the middle of a big old lie
Cut down
Everything is gonna be all right
Cut down
What am I supposed to be
When everything comes down on me?

Same thing anyway
I just wanna try to make a getaway
Never wanted to be the one
With my back to the wall while I stare at the sun
My eyes wide open, you never can tell
The problem is I know damn well
That the things that I do don't matter that much
I've been using a massive crutch
While the world goes by, leaves me behind
I probably need to be redesigned
So I stop living as if I'm dead
Like a man with a gun at the back of his head
And you're better than me, it's easy to see
You're twice whatever I could be
I never thought that I would need someone to set me free

(German verse)
