You got me in a corner
You got me against the wall
I got nowhere to go
I got nowhere to fall

Take back your insurance
Baby nothin's guaranteed
Take back your acid rain
Baby let your T.V. bleed

You're jammin' me, you're jammin' me,
Quit jammin' me
Baby you can keep me painted in a corner
You can look away, but it's not over

Take back your angry slander
Take back your pension plan
Take back your ups and downs of your life
In raisin-land

Take back Vanessa Redgrave
Take back Joe Piscopo
Take back Eddie Murphy
Give 'em all some place to go

You're jammin' me, you're jammin' me
Quit jammin' me
Baby you can keep me painted in a corner
You can walk away but it's not over

Take back your Iranian torture
And the apple in young Steve's eye
Yeah take back your losing streak
Check your front wheel drive

Take back Pasadena
Take back El Salvador
Take back that country club
They're tr yin' to build outside my door

    This song might have fit well on The Last DJ. I think it's basically a "Take you're commercialized, over-hyped, branded, 24/7, mochachino, do the Dew, super-consumer attitude and shove it" kind of song.

    My Interpretation

    "And the apple in young Steve's eye"

    Must refer to Steve Jobs, or Steve Wozniak... or both.

    Ha, love how this was one of Petty's biggest hits at the time... and it's only got two comments... Just goes to show how some songs don't stand the test of time too well. Good tune, though.
