Tie Me Down

Click the bait, pull me in
You caught me cold and got me shaking

Don’t you claim this domain
‘cause less is more I could be chasing

I’m one foot in, one foot out
I am free and for the taking

Don’t you ever speak for me
I don’t need no moderator
No one’s on my team but me
I’m the ball, the coach, the player

I don’t need no referee
To blow the whistle on me later

Oh, are you gonna tie me down?

Keep a suitcase at the door
Just a little overnighter

Sleep with one eye open, one eye closed
No bed’s safe when stakes are higher

Oh, are you gonna tie me down?

Fix me up, slow me down
What the fuck did you just ground me?

Oh, are you gonna tie me down?

Four eyes closed, four feet in,
It feels good when I am tied to
