I don't deny I did you told I broke your trust and line
Drolling, selfish, gossip, profound, cocaine mouth over mind
I say:
I wash my hands of the splinters
No master plan i deliver

Enigma wrapped in riddle
Your life I belittle
Dignity in steel
Now I know how it feels

Stubborn, bastard, hardhead, not you, we had good years too
Though apart you're still in my heart, i'd give anything for you

I say:
I wash my hands of the splinters
No master plan i deliver

Enigma wrapped in riddle
Your life I belittle
Dignity in steel
Now I know how it feels

Offender, self obscened, bargain basement howard hughes
Her fate is a wood shed rage these days in lives of few

I say:
I wash my hands of the splinters
No master plan i deliver

Enigma wrapped in riddle
Your life I belittle
Dignity in steel
Now I know how it feels

    General CommentThis song I believe is about Jerry and Layne's relationship. Jerry is saying that he used to make fun of the fact that Layne was a reclouse but now "Now he knows how it feels". Because Jerry went through the same thing Layne did over the past couple of years.

    General Commentthese are the real lyrics:
    Stubborn bastard, hard head knocking
    We had our good years too
    Though apart, you're still in my heart
    I'd give anything for you

    And I say...
    I wash my hands, pull the splinters
    No master plan, I deliver

    Enigma wrapped in riddle
    Your life I belittle
    Dignity I'd steal
    Now I know how it feels

    Often heard, seldom seen
    Bargain Basement Howard Hughes
    Hermit phase, a woodshed rage
    These days headlines are few

    And I say...
    I wash my hands, pull the splinters
    No master plan, I deliver

    Enigma wrapped in riddle
    Your life I belittle
    Dignity I'd steal
    Now I know how it feels

    General CommentYou've both got it wrong. Sugar,you forgot the first part of the song that contains "slivers" instead of "splinters."

    Straight from my handy dandy Degradation Trip notebook:

    Don't deny I did you cold
    I broke your trust and lied
    Controlling, selfish, gossip abound
    Cocaine mouth over mind

    And I say...
    I wash my hands, pull the slivers
    No master plan, I deliver

    Enigma wrapped in riddle
    Your life I belitte
    Dignity I'd stea
    Now I know how it feels

    Stubborn bastard, hard head knocking
    We had our good years too
    Though apart, you're still in my heart
    I'd give anything for you

    And I say...
    I was my hands, pull the splinters
    No master plan, I deliver

    Enigma wrapped in riddle
    Your life I belitte
    Dignity I'd steal
    Now I know how it feels

    Often heard, seldom seen
    Bargain Basement Howard Hughes
    Hermit phase, a woodshed rage
    These days headlines are few

    And I say...
    I wash my hands, pull the splinters
    No master plan, I deliver

    Enigma wrapped in riddle
    Your life I belittle
    Dignity I'd steal
    Now I know how it feels

    General Commenti never knew jerry and layne "hated" each other at times. i should've known they would've though, being with each other for so long as a band. there'd have to be some fights. sadly, i've only known about AiC until after layne's death, thanks to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
