Mop It Up

lyrics

You wouldn't expect her to reject you ambitious conjecture of union so fine. You remind her how you've cried for her and she sighs, "I know, it's a crime dear, but he buyed for me things that cost big money."

So you ache and wait for the rain saying faith has only brought you pain, but you mistake in saying so. Though upside-down now you are made whole.

Mop, mop, mop it up. Your red eyes cry a cup to clean up after the retreat. Please tell your self you smelt dirt a million miles away before you felt hurt. It's faith not self deceit.

You should have re-read this. She took your bed. Now it's sad because you're restless and sleeping on your own. That's reckless, and you know this, but you're no more the nice guy nor the sucker, shirtless. And you've decided for. You ain't gonna hurt no more.

Well something that we did not know is it’s better to just let it go. And tell ourselves we still have friends, so don't make walls that hurt at them. Instead we'll live in black and white. And swing our picks and frown and fight with charcoal faces dark as night. But from each end the smirks will curl, and twinkling eyes will, like, concur: We all have faces made of pearl.

Mop, mop, mop it up. Your red eyes cry a cup to clean up after the retreat. Please tell your self you smelt dirt a million miles away before you felt hurt. It's faith not self deceit.

Mop, mop, mop it up. Your red eyes cry a cup to clean up after the retreat. Please tell your self you smelt dirt a million miles away before you felt hurt. It's faith not self deceit.
