lyrics

now, first of all for clarity
i described events as they happened
as far as i can see
i’ve been pretty boilerplate on this.
and there’s no point now
and i do question your intentions
oh and thanks for personally
informing me of your new developments

had i known, had i known,
that you signed on as a martyr i would have declined

gratitude, right...
thanks for your selflessness to the cause
honey i know i’d be nowhere
without your charitable acts of kindness
i know you really want to help
but it’s ill-advised,
and i’m not inclined to take donations,
i’d advise you pair up that love
with some registered institutions

had i known that you signed on as a martyr,
i would have declined

as for these feelings blowing over, well, honey they always do
ain’t that the beauty of this love, comes but once in a lifetime
no matter what you will do
but i’ve lived my life long,
and so this is just another curve, another blow
but my style is to lay my cards on the table,
and so i have done,
...just so you know

had i known that you signed on as a martyr,
i would have declined

don’t get me wrong,
my many thanks, my many thanks
but don’t you come courting me now
with that carrot on a stick - like you know what makes me tick
you and your mercenary functions...
do i look like i need your sanctifications?

had i known, had i known
that you signed on as a martyr,
i would have declined
yeah i would have declined.
