if you asked me to change my shape
the best that i could do is shave my face and put on weight
oh now, if you asked me to change my place
the best that i could do is send you calls from another state
oh i'm ripe for the picking a fight the air is thick and heavy
and there it sits for the taking an open invitation
you declined so now, yeah now i guess you're free on your own

you're quick to watch from your window as you wait for the clouds that stand above me to open up and spit out rain
yeah, you're quick to ask for the food on my plate, can't you see i'm starving and i haven't slept for days
oh i'm ripe for the picking a fight the air is thick and heavy
and there it sits for the taking an open invitation
you declined so now, yeah now i guess you're free on your own

and never once was victory the word of the day
never did i let the plans drawn up disintegrate
there are tracks to be laid if there's motion to be made
and you should know
i'm not afraid to take the map and walk away
if you asked me to call out your name - it wouldn't do much good next to the sound of a running train

oh now, if i asked you to call out my name, wouldn't do much good next to the sound of a wrecking train
oh i'm ripe for the picking a fight the air is thick and heavy
and there it sits for the taking an open invitation
you declined so now, yeah now i guess you're free on your own
