Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well I know, you couldn't love me
'Cause you're promised to a wealthy man
Take a look, what are you seeing?
Is that a noose or a wedding band
Verse 2
Should I go to see a healer
Nervous twitchin' in my hands
Nervous twitchin' in my head
Verse 3
God help me rid this feelin'
Cause I'm fallin' to pieces
And I can't get out of bed
Verse 4
Beggars and hangers-on
Try to take you from me
Someone with a bible in his pocket
Clouding everything you see
Verse 5
Beggars and hangers-on
They chip it away
Bury your soul in the river
'Cause the end is here to stay
Verse 6
God help me rid this feelin'
'Cause I'm fallin' to pieces
And I can't get out of bed
Verse 7
I was wrong I don't need you
It seems reckless and unfair
Better days
Are far behind
Guess that's another cross I'll have to bear
Verse 8
I know that there's a time and a reason
To take the ghost and lock it up inside
And maybe I am down
But I'm not beaten
Like anything
We were born to die
Verse 9
Beggars and hangers-on
Try to take you from me
Someone with a bible in his pocket
Clouding everything you see
Verse 10
Beggars and hangers-on
They chip it away
Bury your soul in the river
'Cause the end is here to stay
Verse 11
Beggars and hangers on
Beggars and hangers on
No no no no
No no no no
No no no no
