(Continue in a similar manner)

Excuse me this time, but I've seen what you do.
You're shamed you're naked, humiliated too.
With no ego and no pride left, you wonder who you are.
You feel like you've been pushed into a corner
and it shouldn't go this far.


(all pick scrapes)
No, no, no, you know you know this man.
No, no, no, he'll do almost anything he can.


I think that's it. Really easy, listen to the track for rhythm.
