Dillinger Four Shut Your Trap *a Song For Jake* Lyrics

Last updated:

I KNOW IT扴 HARD TO BELIEVE BUT PART OF ME WAS SCARED TO LEAVE
THEY WERE SO CONCERNED WITH WHAT I DESERVED
THEY NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT I扗 NEED
AND I KNOW MY FRIENDS FROM HIGH SCHOOL
ARE DROPPING MY NAME BECAUSE THEY THINK IT扴 SO COOL
THAT IM CAUGHT IN A CAGE MATCH RUN BY THE STATE
WITH MIDDLE-AGED MEN WHISPERING SOFTLY ABOUT RAPE
WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE ME, WHERE SHOULD I GO
TRAPPED WITH WORSE EVILS THAN I扸E EVER KNOWN
THINK OF WHAT YOU HAD SEEN WHEN YOU WERE 16
THAN THINK OF ME
NOW I扢 JUST A GUY WHO扴 GOT HALF HIS TIME TO GO
IF GOOD BEHAVIOR MEANS A TWO-YEAR SHOW
OTHER CONS ARE TALKING ABOUT ME NOW THEY CALL ME THE KID
AND THE JUDGE WHO SENT ME UP MADE A GOOD IMPRESSION
FOR THE NEXT ELECTION
BUT WHAT THE MEDIA WON扵 SAY IS EVEN WITH MY FREEDOM
I STILL WOULDN扵 BE OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE AGAINST HIM
SOME NIGHTS ALL I COULD DO WAS SIT AND CRY
IS THIS WHAT THEY WANT OR DO THEY WANT ME TO DIE?
IF THAT扴 THE CASE, SPARK UP THE CHAIR, TAPE UP MY FACE
KILL ME RIGHT HERE, BECAUSE I CAN扵 TAKE THIS LIVING IN FEAR
AND WHAT I扢 GETTING OUT OF THIS HAS NEVER MAD IT SELF CLEAR
AS A FREE MAN I HAD TO FIGHT WHAT THEY TAUGHT ME
PARANOIA AND CONSTANT BIGOTRY
A MIND-SET DESIGNED AND PROVIDED JUST TO HOLD ME DOWN
WHERE RESPECT CAME ONLY THROUGH INTIMIDATION
SO I扢 ALWAYS EXPECTING A CONFRONTATION
APPARENTLY THIS IS WHAT THEY CALL REHABILITATION.
