​Bed of Nails

This song is by The Cavedogs and appears on the album Joyrides for Shut-Ins (1990).

If they write to make me wrong
Would you learn to hate me?
Cut my ties or change my song
Would you move to save me?

Caught in a bind that I'm bound to come back to
Here as I lay down to die
In my bed of nails

Would you stand to watch me crawl?
Would you move to help me?
Turn your back or break my fall
Save my name or sell me

Caught in a lie that I'm bound to come back to
Here as I lay down to die
In my bed of nails
In my bed of nails

You lean upon me like the weight of the world
And it's bound to make me change
And roll me over as we lie in the bed wide awake
But I can't make it up

Envision the crimes that I'm bound to wake up to
Here as I lay down to die
In my bed of nails
In my bed of nails
In my bed

Tie my shoes and tie my tie
Tie my arms behind me
Tie my shoes and tie my tie
Tie my arms behind me
Tie my shoes and tie my tie
Tie my arms behind me
