Lyrics

   I want my money back, I'm down here drowning in your fat
   You got me on my knees praying for everything you lack
   I ain't afraid of you, I'm just a victim of your fear
   You cower in your tower praying that I'll disappear
   
   I got another plan, one that requires me to stand
   On the stage or in the street, don't need no microphone or beat
   And if you hear this song, if you ain't dead then sing along
   Bang and strum to this here drum 'til you get where you belong
   
   I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth, you wanna be somebody?
   See somebody? Try and free somebody?
   
   Got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth
   Hand to mouth
   
   I wrote a song for you today while I was sitting in my room
   I jumped up on a bed today and played it on a broom
   I didn't think that it would be a song that you would hear
   But when I played it in my head, I made you reappear
   
   I wrote a video for it and I acted out each part
   And then I took your picture out and taped it to my heart
   I've taped you to my heart, dear girl, I've taped you to my heart
   And if you pull away from me you'll tear my life apart
   
   I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth, you wanna be somebody?
   See somebody? Try and free somebody?
   
   Got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth
   Hand to mouth
   
   Ecstasy, suffering, echinacea, buffering
   We aim to remember what we choose to forget
   God's just a baby and her diaper is wet
   
   Call the police, I'm strapped to the teeth
   And liable to disregard your every belief
   Call on the law, I'm fixing to draw
   A line between what is and seems and call up a brawl
   
   Call on them now 'cause it's about to go pow
   I'm standing on the threshold of the ups and the downs
   Call up a truce 'cause I'm about to break loose
   Protect ya neck 'cause son I'm breaking out of my noose
   
   I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth, you wanna be somebody?
   See somebody? Try and free somebody?
   
   Got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth
   Hand to mouth
   
   I got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth, you wanna be somebody?
   See somebody? Try and free somebody?
   
   Got a list of demands written on the palm of my hands
   I ball my fist and you gon' know where I stand
   We living hand to mouth
   Hand to mouth
