Lyrics: Bother (Tricky)

Artist: Tricky
Song: Bother
Album: Skilled Mechanics

(Note: Cover of “Bother” by Stone Sour.)

Wish I was too dead to cry
Self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater

You don’t need to bother
I don’t need to be
I’ll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on
I won’t let go ’til it bleeds

Wish I was too dead to care
If indeed I cared at all
Never had a voice to protest
So you fed me shit to digest

I wish I had a reason
My flaws are open season
For this I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying

You don’t need to bother
I don’t need to breathe
I’ll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on
I won’t let go ’til it bleeds
