lyrics

Big black dog follows right behind me
step by step, a good shadow is he.
with each mile I make, he howls.
“keep on girl” he whispers to me
“in this world, you should be learning,
less to sing and more to growl.”

words create a complication
I’m so tired of conversation
I just want to shut your mouth
I am a man of action and I demand satisfaction.

stung by bees, I’m hurt and swollen
stumbling, handcuffed, blindfolded
with each step I take, away from home.
passersby may stop and wonder
and cry about this spell I’m under
“big black dog, just leave that girl alone!”

birds fly in a congregation
confusing the whole situation
I just want to bring them down.

I am a man of action and I demand satisfaction.

words create a complication
I’m so tired of conversation
I just want
I just want
I just want
to shut your mouth

I am a man of action and I demand satisfaction.
