Nellie McKay No Equality Lyrics

Last updated: 01/10/2011 10:00:00 AM

There's no equality here
There's no equality anywhere
And every failing face
Is quickly replaced
By one you can't lose

It's an illusion
I'll even do revolution
That's never meant to occur
Won't happen to her
Won't happen to you

And you let me down slowly
Let me down slow and you turned me around
Let me down easy
Let yourself go, now you're goin' to town

Baby, baby, can't you see
What this hypocrisy is doin' to me?
We should've kicked over the ladders
From the start

You used to be my lover
You used to be my soul, soul brother
I used to believe
That you could conceive
Conceive with my love

But you let me down slowly
You let me down slow and you turned me around
Let me down easy
Let yourself go, now you're goin' to drown

Baby, baby, can't you see
What this absurdity is doin' to me?
We should've kicked over the ladders
From the start
There's no equality

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
No one supposes just how mean I can be
I play the victim and I really care
And all I've ever wanted is
Everything I'm gonna have

There's no equality here
There's no equality on earth I fear
There are so many ..
The boss and the border
It's me or it's you

That's why I let you down slowly
Let you down slow and I turned you around
Let you down easy
Let myself go, now we're both set to drown

Baby, baby, can't you see
What this futility is doin' to me?
We should've kicked over the ladders
From the start
There's no equality
