The Sudden And Very Honest Confession Of A Hot Shot Gazelle Who No Longer Cares About Being Thought Of As Tough Or Cool

by Duncan Jones

Well I think found myself in a bit of a mess
All because like a fool I was tryin’ to impress
But if I ever make it back … I swear I won’t do it again
Now I get it, I’m sorry, I know I should’ve known
Why you never seem to see nobody down here alone
Yeah right about now I could certainly use a friend

“I’m not scared of them! I don’t care what they think!”
So I marched myself down to the water for a drink
And it didn’t take long … ’til it all just didn’t feel right
There’s something big in the grass, something bigger in the water
And there’s vultures up above, and man it’s gettin’ hotter
And it’s quiet, too quiet, and it seems like there’s gonna be a fight

Hey if anyone can help me now’s a real good time to show
Because I’m pretty sure I’m surrounded, and I got nowhere to go
I’ll never try to be cool, I’ll never try to be tough
I sure got my fill, this once is enough
You can take my place, you can have the praise
As for me I just wanna go home

Oh I’ve tussled before with some pretty big boys
But now I really don’t feel like making any noise
No the only thing I feel is uncool … and pretty unwise
Not a minute ago it was a really nice day
But that all changed quick, I gotta go, I can’t stay
I thought I came to play … but now I think I’m just the prize

Yes I’ve learned my lesson, and it’s loud and clear
And I’m tryin’ to find a way, how to get outta here
I don’t wanna wait … for them to have their fun
But it ain’t gettin’ better, and the walls are tightening
Now I’m normally quick, but today I’m lightning
So ready set run … I ain’t waitin’ around for no gun …

Hey if anyone can help me now’s a real good time to show
Because I’m pretty sure I’m surrounded, and I got nowhere to go
I’ll never try to be cool, I’ll never try to be tough
I sure got my fill, this once is enough
You can take my place, you can have the praise
As for me I just wanna go home
