What's that accent? Where are you from?
What are you drinking? How'd I get some?
Sinking my teeth into something new
Doing what my maker taught me to

Don't let it get heavy
You are the law
Don't let it get heavy
You are the law
Why won't you come get me?
You are the law

I'm wired in, I'm ten feet tall
Tell me my failings, take my call
Sinking my teeth into someone new
Be my angel, just look at you

Don't let it get heavy
You are the law
Don't let it get heavy
You are the law
Why don't you regret it?
You are the law

    To me this is maybe about a young girl turning to prostitution...

    "Don't let it get heavy
    You are the law"

    She doesn't want a commitment, but will submit to their requests

    Why won't you come get me?
    You are the law

    She entice them near, reassuring them that they have the say and that she will obey their demands

    "I'm wired in, I'm ten feet tall"

    Maybe drugs gives her the courage to do this

    "Tell me my failings, take my call"

    She is ready to be declined or accepted

    "Sinking my teeth into someone new
    Be my angel, just look at you"

    She moves on to another, and there is always a little hope that maybe she
    will find someone who can save her, but it just stays the same routine.

    "Why don't you regret it?
    You are the law"

    She wants punishment for doing these things, wanting her clients to regret it, but they don't.
