wind up lyrics – foo fighters

i have a choice between the bat and the belt
each time i hear about the hand you’ve been dealt
spare me confession, it’s confession you sell
maybe i’ll fall behind but i don’t mind because i’ll catch up

i want a song that indelible like manimal
i hope you never see me wind up

will i be happy on the back of the shelf
will you be happy when we’re sharing a cell
spare me your questions since you know me so well
someday you’ll realize that i get shy and i choke up

i want a song that’s indelible like manimal
i hope you never see me wind up
what is wrong with this animal, i’m terrible
i hope you never see me wind up

farewell my sweet paramania
(repeat)

my only promise is that i’ll never tell
keep you at a distance from the things that i felt
i’ll bite the bullet, take the beating until
i take it all back anyway, what was i supposed to say?

i want a song that’s indelible like manimal
i hope you never see me wind up
what is wrong with this animal, i’m terrible
i hope you never see me wind up
