Stand Up Tragedy Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Pardon me sugar
I'm the man underneath your thumb
But I won't take your violence
And I won't chew your bubblegum
Verse 2
White heat, indiscreet, any day now obsolete
Though you've seen your best days I will still walk down your empty street
Well you look like salvation but you taste like a refugee
You say you've got no soul but you look like you do to me
Verse 3
If I was the melody you were the symphony
Honey loving you took the very best of me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your stand up tragedy
Verse 4
Well I've been pushing up daisies
Just to catch a glimpse of something real
When I see you coming I might just as well give up and kneel
Well if you saw me broken won't you put me out my misery
Well I don't do handsome and you don't do sympathy
Verse 5
If I was the melody you were the symphony
Honey loving you took the very best of me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your stand up tragedy
Verse 6
Wrong from the get go
Let it slide
Tell them what they don't know
Sing those praises far and wide
Verse 7
Give those speeches
Ring them bells
Mama don't know what she preaches
But she sure looks dignified
Well she sure looks dignified
Well she sure looks dignified
Verse 8
If I was the melody you were the symphony
Honey loving you took the very best of me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your stand up tragedy
Verse 9
Take my only guarantee
I could be your slave if you'd only beg for me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your
Verse 10
Stand up
Sit down
Lie back
Turn round
Play dead
For me
Stand up tragedy
