"A Little Place Called Trust" as written by and John Ashley Congleton....
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are -
To shove away the hand so fast?
Who do you think you are?
Well, maybe I'm the devil,
To harbor the sick and obscene.
Maybe this, the albatross,
I'm like an ivory tower -
Level or power, but

You are not the innocent.

What do you take me for,
You mother fucker?
What do you take me for,
When I'm a sheperd's light,
When I'm a quantum leap?
You don't want freedom;
You want trick photography.
It's a good thing
I'm an airbrushed girl,
A diamond ring.
I need it new;
I need it rising above.
(Meanwhile),
The jury laughs at you, love.

You are not the innocent.

Oh, dirty hands,
A little place called trust,
But you ain't sold one, yet.

(I once told you
I have my "wants" and "needs"
And "want you to's".
It all depends.
And then the album
Skipped the end,
So I got up
To play it again.
I know you.
I know that look.
I know this little attitude,
Good friend.
I need you to confess
Those awful sins.)

You are not the innocent.

You deserve whatever you get, because
You are not
No!
You are not
No!

You are not the innocent.

    General CommentAlso, the lyrics in the bridge are actually this:

    I told you
    I've got my wants and needs and want you to's.
    It depends
    But the album skips the end
    We play it again
    and I know you
    I know this look I know this attitude
    Good friend
    I need you to confess these most awful sins.

    General CommentI think that the whole intro with the sharpening of knives and how that's used as the beat through the whole song is very eerie and grating. Things like that are what makes this band so damn amazing.

    General CommentThe whole album is about betrayal and revenge.
    In this song, the character realizes that he can't trust the other person any more, and it's their fault. He's sharpening the knives for some act of revenge.
