Damaged Goods

from American Ethos album by American Ethos

lyrics

we really out did ourselves
sitting at the bottom of a wishing well
taught to dream in Technicolor:
red, white, and blue

so what’s a boy to do?
sit under stars and dream about her
what’s a boy to feel?
come on and hit me baby,
show me what’s real

“well I’ve got it made”
she throws her voice like a hand grenade
well I don’t bow to Gods
and I don’t bow to you
“well I’m doing fine”
she throws herself across the party lines
well I don’t bow to Gods
and I don’t bow to you

so set me up and sit me down
spin me dizzy like a carousel
but when the lights burn out
what’s left to do?
when she is feeling low,
she cracks a smile through the alcohol
when she is feeling high,
…well, I’ve never really seen that side

“I’ve got it made”
she throws her voice like a hand grenade
well I don’t bow to Gods
and I don’t bow to you
“well I’m doing fine”
she throws herself across the party lines
well I don’t bow to Gods
I don’t bow to you

so what about it.
what about it?
on the floor or through the door
you can’t live with out it
but when the magic is gone,
when the record stops
we will still find ourselves
clinging to the mattress

so what about it.
what about it?
dance dance dance dance
my little princess
but when the magic is gone,
when the record stops
we will still find ourselves
clinging to the mattress


SHE SAID:

“oh darling, we’re just damaged goods
so late into the party
come meet me in the bathroom”

oh darling,
we’re just damaged goods
but aren’t we all?
