i took a bulldozer to my brain
and from the driver's seat through grinning teeth
i sang that old ______ refrain
"there's only room for one of us in this town"

maybe now, you'll stop pushing me around
maybe now, you'll stop holding down

i wrote a letter to explain
that what i did to you i had to do
cause every time i skipped a beat
you were right behind saying
"don't trust him, trust me"

maybe now, you'll stop pushing me around
maybe now, you'll stop holding down

you told me about the bad before the good could start
you told me it was wrong to live with too much heart
you said it was naive.

i took a bulldozer to my brain
now can you hear that blood running through my veins?
it's the only sound there is
it's so quiet now, so easy to give in

maybe now, you'll stop pushing me around
maybe now, you'll stop holding down

    General CommentOh, I've heard Bess introduce this a few times that it's about her own tendency to be kind of neurotic. which makes me love the song a million times more than when I thought it was about some idiot in her life (though I still really enjoyed it then).

    Best EP ever! Thanks for posting the lyrics!
