​Step Down

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

You're so alarmed by every twist, the pain again, how they let you down
Routinely scarred by the world, its scenes obscene, soberly push you around
Your decorated lace innocence is so profound
Just keep an eye out from behind it so they'll notice that you're still around
So you go to your friends and they love you
Look inside of you
You're as sweet as you could be, step down, you're through

You talk aloud behind the doors and backs of people whose help you've found
Parading, always trading privileged words that help you to win the crowd
Easy to light up a silhouette with quotes too loud
They'll realize when all complaints have dried that you'd never sell them out
'Cause you know they're your friends and they love you
Look inside, it's true
You're as sweet as you could be, step down, you're through

With an extreme amount of candor, you'd be lost but very good
And in between responsibilities you could rule the neighborhood
But your scheming isn't stood
Still you scream, not at me

(scream)

Don't dry your eyes to proudly wear the proof that suddenly I've let you down
Another reason for you not to live, just stay home and kick around
Just one more slap to your innocence, it all compounds
So while you're struggling from beneath, make sure they don't catch you looking down
Then you tell all your friends it's the last time, but they know more than you

You're as sweet as you could be, step down
You're as sweet as you could be, step down

You're as sweet as you could be, step down
You're as sweet as you could be, step down
You're as sweet as you could be, step down
You're as sweet as you could be, step down
You're as sweet as you can be
