Old hope got stuck in your throat
Wound it's way round your neck and caused you to choke

Old hope made of rope, that held you tight as the chair legs broke

When they found you hangin' in the wood, you said "At least now I don't have to be kind nor good"
"I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene"
"Tear out my tongue, 'cause I've been redeemed"

When they found you hangin' in the wood, you said "At least now I don't have to be kind nor good"
"I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene"
"Tear out my tongue, 'cause I've been redeemed"

Save my blushes for the grave, no shy glance, no coy restraints, and I won't hang my head, and I won't repent
Won't face the wall and count to 10

5, 6, 7, 8, 9... 10

Well they tore you down and they tore out your tongue and they made you kneel for all the things that you'd done, but youwouldn't cry and you wouldn't beg, you just grinned and tore out your teeth instead

And when they found you hangin in the wood, you said "At least now I don't have to be kind nor good"
"I'll be cruel and I'll be obscene"
"Tear out my tongue, 'cause I've been redeemed"

I don't have to sit down and behave, cause my darling I've been saved
