Lyrics:
beat me up
and then beat me down
mess me up beyond all recognition
for what it’s worth I’d do it again
with no consequence I will do it again
I’m hard up don’t let me down
jump the gun
bust the cap hit the ground

yo yo yo
word
my dignity never
returned
perceived like a big fat
jerk
a bit silly but not
absurd
criminal that’s what I
herd
thinking thoughts that’s most
impured
no efforts
expenditured
I’m just that soup
de jour’d

on the fence the consequence
what do they know about that?
off the track ahead of the pack
what do they know about that?
I’m quite impressed I’m quite a mess
