Tongue-In-Cheek

Lift you up to let you down, now you can get out
We’ll put the blame on you
Can’t you see it’s all about me and I’ve got nothing to prove
Now you’ve gone and spoiled it all by knowing right from wrong
You’re as free to leave as I am naive and you just don’t belong

Make the rules up as I go, I’m sure no one will ever know
The lies come so easily, what do I need with honesty?
I only want your loyalty, don’t tell me what you think of me

No, no, no, no our time is not up, in fact it’s only begun
Couldn’t care less, it’s all such a mess
‘cause you know we’re having fun
No need to explain, I know you’re all in pain,
But you’ve been through this before
Too old to change, maybe a little deranged, life is such a bore

Make the rules up as I go, I’m sure no one will ever know
The lies come so easily, what do I need with honesty?
I only want your loyalty, don’t tell me what you think of me

Think big, act small to build myself up
Don’t even need to an excuse
Tell me what’s in a name aside from fortune and fame
A brand and a noose
Now I run the game and rigged it nearly the same
Using a color code
Marginalize the mean, redefine the obscene
And live above the fold

Make the rules up as I go, I’m sure no one will ever know
The lies come so easily, what do I need with honesty?
I only want your loyalty, don’t tell me what you think of me
What I say is how it goes and you will not be left alone

about

Black Dog Prowl Washington

Black Dog Prowl is considered one of Washington, D.C.'s hardest hitting rock bands. The four-piece showcases original material ranging from the slow, down-tuned to a fast-paced kick in the teeth. If one insists on drawing a line to the familiar, BDP has drawn sonic comparisons to the likes of Soundgarden, Torche, and Nirvana. ... more
