​Self-Made Trap

This song is by 77s and appears on the album Pray Naked (1992).

I'll beat the rap for a self-made trap
Get all tied up in endless crap
Quicksand, I planned
Pitfalls, I dig 'em all

Self-made rope
And self-made binds
I'm all wrapped up
In a sour grape vine
A human web,
I've spun every thread
Tight nets, I weave all I can get
A rats maze wouldn't faze
Brick walls, I'm enthralled

Self-made traps, self-made snares
Handicaps and wheelchairs
Drown myself in rain,
Freeze myself in snow
Help comes fast, pride goes slow
Could be free if I choose
Born to win, dying to lose

Self-made twine,
Hand-made chains
I'm all bound up and self-contained
Jail cells, I build well
Lions dens, I got a yen
Land mines, I design
Avalanche, I wouldn't blanch

Self-made traps, self-made snares
Handicaps and wheelchairs
Drown myself in rain,
Freeze myself in snow
Help comes fast, pride goes slow
Could be free if I choose
Born to win, dying to lose

The warden comes to set me free
I grip the bars, swallow up the key
It's like serving time
When there's none left
On a fast train nowhere
But we're not there yet
The scenery moves
The train stands still

Dungeon dark,
I'll quench every spark
A hangman's noose,
Never leave 'em loose

Self-made traps, self-made locks
Combinations I forgot
For guards and gates I await
I'm a natural born inmate
Could be free if I choose
Born to win, dyin' to lose
Lust came fast, love left slow
The die is cast, the word is no
