two beats off lyrics – fugazi

i cut my nails to the quick
but still i was caught with my hand in the till
red-handed.
give me something,
give me anything
the threat of everything is when it becomes nothing at all
fingers reaching, trophy swelling
that’s when desire trips me up.
got a new technique money let’s the pieces fit where they fall.
privilege – it sanctions everything.
security – a net under it all.
my fingers reaching, the trophy swelling
that’s when desire trips me up.
i cut my nails to the quick
but still i was caught with my hand in the till.
red-handed
