Clean Sweep

Lyrics: Laurence - Music: Laurence and yeP!

Appears on...




You woke up on the wrong side of the coffin this morning.
Don't take it out on me, babe. 
If you wanna suck blood don't just get to it 
Take a number and get in line.

I'm alright.
I'm already hated by hundreds of people much better than you.
I've got a style that's all my own. 
If you all don't see then It's not my problem
Don't join the club if you just wanna run the show. 

It's harder to forgive it all when you know that It's a lie.
You give no quarter and you take the rest. 
Don't expect that I'll be here for you when you come down at last.
My simple rules don't seem to fit your test.

I'll make a clean sweep of life.

You lash out.
There's poison on the tip of your tongue and blood on the tip of mine. 
Don't pour your seething cauldron of expletives out on me.
If I wanna do that I could just go to prison,
Light up a bowl and smoke away the days.

Goodbye girl.
If you don't know what your doing, don't do it at all.
Taking me to task for the sins of your expectations
Is melodrama I can't use so
Get it, get it, get get get it out!

The people in my life are what make the most of me
And of all of me your the part I hate the most.
So take your stupid arguments and pack 'em up to go
Just one more day 'til I give up the ghost.

I'll make a clean sweep of life.

I'm alright.
I'm already hated by hundreds of people much better than you.
I've got a style that's all my own. 
If you all don't see then It's not my problem
Don't join the club if you just wanna run the show. 

You're gone, you're gone, you're gone...
