Come on commit me, commit me
I can't commit myself
Without your straightjacket love
I'd be headed straight to hell

If you've got plans to cut me
Darling won't you cut me loose?
i shined my boots at the gallows
But you weren't there to tie my noose

It's like dragging a bag of bones
Behind a dying horse
Just dragging what's left of us
To the scene of the crime

Come on commit me, commit me
I can't commit myself
Without your straightjacket love
I'd be headed straight to hell
You've got me tongue-tied, cut me wide open
Raging like a radical man
But am I standing up for something
That would be unable to stand on it's own?

A broken afterglow
A case full of survivor's guilt
I thought perhaps we might collapse
What many lonely years had built

I finely set my sights on midnight
Cuz I know you're gonna break my heart
Come daylight
You're the nightingale who adorns me
With the weight of morning...
