lyrics

It's a slow progression
But one I can't deny
When I finally step into the light
Oh here I come and
I will leave you breathless
I will leave you high
Are we banking on the safe word tonight?
I like to keep em guessing
When they say who am I?
The finger's pointed too high

When all I wanted was someone who could save my life
I got the business end of the knife
All I wanted was someone who could set me free (yeah-ahahahah)
When you lock me up you better eat the key

And like all defenseless, useless alibis
Do I want to be found out
Well maybe next time
‘Cause I've just got to get it
Escape that evil eye
Get outside of my mind
I like to leave em guessing
When they say who am I?
The finger's pointed too high

When all I wanted was someone who could save my life
I got the business end of the knife
All I wanted was someone who could set me free (yeah-ahahahah)
When you lock me up you better eat the key
(double chorus)

You better eat the key (x3)

‘Cause I get
What I want
I get
What I want
Stop crying
That's what I want
And I get
What I want
