if I'm not the crack of the cork
and the shot in the arm across
the room like a four alarm
some kind of danger
i look that way
you try to be cool
with little to say
i can't be the calm
your bottle of wine
i have to be a quarter
not a nickel and dimes
i want to be the prayer
answered when you meet me
the pain the bat and the blood
when you beat me

'cause you're
infallible, bombastic
sonically elastic
energetic, spastic
explosive plastic
sculpture, cast it
mclaren, pass it
emotional, drastic
egg first, crack it
first date, mack it
suitcase, pack it
eight-ball, rack it
sadness, don't mask it
thoughts scholastic
glockenspiel, blast it
pack of butts, hack it
a hit song, track it
a hatred, whack it
sorrow, sack it
wasted, drink it
you thought it, think it
like pretty and pink kid
battleship, sink it
big dream, make a bid
do it, you just did

if I'm not the crack of the cork
and the shot in the arm across
the room like a four alarm
some kind of danger
i look that way
you try to be cool
with little to say
i can't be the calm
your bottle of wine
i have to be a quarter
not a nickel and dimes
i want to be the prayer
answered when you meet me
the pain the bat and the blood
when you beat me

because you're
impossibly protected
criminally respected
soulfully connected
chaotic and hectic
temptress naked
candy-coat, bake it
dunes city, rake it
concerns placated
you know you have to make it
if it's not broken, break it
if it's stolen, take it
answer with a bayonet
dime bag, stash it
accelerator, mash it
get it out like an exorcist
sado- like a masochist
nine-0, thrash it
five-0, smash it
hotel room, trash it
coming down, crash it
like pistols and pink Sid
stir it up and drink it
big week, make a bid
do it, you just did

    General CommentI really like the flow of this song,
    and the little bits of advice, "sadness, don't mask it"
    it may not be the deepest song
    (and i don't really knwo the meaning)
    but i think is great

    General Commenti haven't looked at it too much, but i really like the lines

    you try to be cool
    with little to say
    i can't be the calm
    your bottle of wine
    i have to be a quarter
    not a nickel and dimes

    it seems like hes saying he has to be his self, and hes trying to point out that if you try to act a different way then your going to be nothing

    General CommentThis track alone compelled me to run out and buy the album.
    I listened to whole thing, and found several good tracks, but Beat Me has remained my favorite. The pace and flow are good, and the lyrics are engaging and mildly thought provoking. There is an interesting imagery created in chorus line.
