I?m walkin? the straight and narrow
I?m stayin? between the lines
So what if my life don?t fit me
I only know half the time.
I got this thing so down, baby
Don?t you tell me this ain?t right
So what if my soul is itchin?
I got it all locked up tight
So perfectly frozen, there?s no crack in the ice

Good intentions
I got good intentions
Like your good intentions
Good intentions

This calls for some drastic measures
Perform a little surgery
Some part of me?s not trustworthy
Steel cure?s a necessity
Ironic how this turns out, baby,
My life or femininity.
My choices will make or break me
Either way, I guess I?ll be free
You can go ahead and move on
There ain?t nothin? here to see


You think I don?t walk the right road
I know what you sayin? ?bout me
So easy to cast enough stones,

It crosses my mind sometimes
I?d get after it if only
I wasn?t so damn tired.
You better watch what you wish for
There?s no tellin? what come by
