Ginger is sleeping on the floor,
Of a hardwood floor apartment.
Maybe one day she'll have more to say,
But right now she has no comment.

Everything's a cavity.
The last few months especially.
But all of that's behind her now.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
See you can tie her up,
Just don't tie her down.
Yeah, you can tie her up,
Don't tie her down.

Back before I got struck by lighting,
And things were so much different than they are now.
I got a lot more people leaning on me.
And all I wanna do is make them proud.

But this is my body.
The only thing that I own entirely.
And it'll carry me to greatness somehow.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
See, you can tie me up,
Don't tie me down.
Yeah, you can tie me up,
Don't tie me down.
Don't tie me down.

Every spider I kill,
Stays inside of my pocket.
I am so desperate to tame the beast,
I shut the door and I lock it.

I got a dead spider in my pocket,
I'm not ashamed to say
I was desperate to tame the beast.
Desperate to tame the beast.

See you can tie me up (You can tie me up),
But don't tie me down (Don't tie me down).
Yeah you can tie me up (You can tie me up),
But don't tie me down (Don't tie me down).

Cause everything's a cavity.
The last three months especially.
But all of that's behind me now.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
So you can tie me up,
Don't tie me down.

    General Comment"you can tie me up but don't tie me down" is such a great line, like so many of TFBs lyrics. I keep writing up stuff about it but now i feel awkward


    what's the deal with the spider bit?
