You've got me crawling out of a hole in the ground now
Pick me up, dust me off and then you push me around again
I watch you hit/kick, with the hatred you strike
Shamed to smile, broken teeth then you turn out the lights on me

I know why you want to hurt me so bad
You didn't mean to hurt me so bad
But you did

Now that you're got your hand tightly gripped around my throat
Broken back shortest straw and I'm beginning to choke
I'm sorry for the blood, these stains won't come out,
Can't you see what you've done, what you did, what you've done to me?

Why are you hurting me?
Only you know…
When you hit me again I know you
What'd you do? You did it to me,
When you hit me again I know you

    General Comment"Is the oldest song on the album and was actually written before some of the EP songs. Lyrically it has a domestic violence theme. Clint had the idea pretty much from when we first rehearsed it to add the trumpet parts in the sections at the end of the verses to give that " Mexican stand-off feel ". There was a lot of debate between the band as to whether or not this song should have gone on the album but the final verdict was that it would. "
