lyrics

Lap Dog



See I used to be, used to be
righteous and of use to people like this
like us, we stuck and I guess something interrupted
What the fuck's been conducted?
See it's only me being what I been all of my life
Of mice and men now the mic and pen been abducted,
Couldn't duck it, as luck would have it
I'm an old Boo Radley and I won't do badly when I move through the valley of the land where they put love in hands of the man who suffers


I ain't a leader
I'll follow wherever you go
I'm just a lap dog
Pat me on the head before you go...

Tell me that I'm good enough...
For another day, for another week, for another year
Cause it do appear, that I'm livin' like a slave in a permanent fear
And my 'Time's Up', Like O.C. say
Some real people but they mostly fake
Most these days in my low key ways
I'm an old lap dog slowly passin' away
I won't see fame, no I didn't seek that
In a dirty lame suit and an old cheap hat
With a weak rap, getting beat real bad
but could you stick around maybe pat me on the back?

I ain't a leader
I'll follow wherever you go
I'm just a lap dog
Pat me on the head before you go...


I gave you all my dreams, I gave you all my love, my pain, my soul, my goals, my name
And then you turned around and gave it all away
I'm an old lap dog in the moon Haooh
Singing you a song howlin' way outta tune
Show love when you see me come through
I ain't gonna bite Haooh Haooh
Sinner man, looking for a bit of god
In a band, or maybe in a synagogue
Or in a cinema shared with the wanderers
Please clasp hands, say a prayer for the underdog


I ain't a leader
I'll follow wherever you go
I'm just a lap dog
Pat me on the head before you go...
