quit

kind of makes you want to quit it
that feeling will eat you up inside
and I got no real problem with it
you wanna let it take you for a ride

but now I gotta get back and hit it
forget about all your fancy clothes
and you see it’s coming right back to haunt you
this was the wicked life you chose

what did you think you would get from this one
i tried to tell you but you said no
we couldn’t see the side of him you did baby
and he would have killed you if you didn’t let go

so you’re layin down begging him to end it this way
all in some big dramatic tale
and you thought that you knew that you could do it
with a plan like this you couldn’t fail

now we can hear the sirens in the background
while you’re thinking of giving him one more chance
and the crowd is gathered all around you
the whole town watching as you dance

why don’t we start from the beginning
no one to watch you for so long
no one to provide a little guidance
nobody there to tell you right from wrong

you threw it away in the 8th grade school yard
the easiest thing at the junior prom
you were the bi-girl queen at the high school parties
you fucked every harriet, dick and tom

kind of makes you want to quit it
that feeling will eat you up inside
and I got no real problem with it
you’re gonna let it take you for a ride.
