Old hope got stuck in your throat,
Wound it's way round your neck and caused you to choke.
Old hope made of rope, that held you tight when the chair legs broke.

When they found you hanging in the woods,
you said at least now I don't have to be kind nor good.
I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene
tear out my tongue 'cause I've been redeemed.

When they found you hanging in the woods,
you said at least now I don't have to be kind nor good.
I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene tear out my tongue
'Cause I've been redeemed.

Save my blushes for the grave, no shy glance, no coy restraint
And I won't hang my head, and I won't repent,
Won't face the wall and count to ten.

5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!

Well they tore you down and they tore out your tongue
and they made you kneel for all the things that you'd done.
But you wouldn't cry, you wouldn't beg,
you just grinned and tore out your teeth instead.

And when they found you hanging in the woods,
you said at least now I don't have to be kind nor good.
I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene
tear out my tongue cause I've been redeemed.

I don't have to sit down and behave
'cause, my darling, I've been saved.
