Cage the Elephant - Back Against The Wall

Back Against The Wall

Tonight I'll have a look
And try to find my face again
Buried beneath this house
My spirit screams and dies again
 
Out back
A monster wears a cloak of Persian leather
Behind the TV screen
I've fallen to my knees
 
I said you got me where you want me again
And I can't turn away
I'm hangin' by a thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here in between
The shadows of my yesterday
I want to get away
I need to get away
 
Blanket of silence
Makes me want to sink my teeth in deep
Burn all the evidence
A fabricated disbelief
 
Pull back the curtains
Took alook into your eyes
My tongue has now become
A platform for your lies
 
I said you got me where you want me again
And I can't turn away
I'm hangin' by a thread and I'm feelin' like a fool
I'm stuck here right between
The shadows of my yesterday
I want to get away
I need to get away
 
[Chorus:]
Now you know
Yeah you got my back against the wall
Oh god
I ain't got no other place to hide
Chained down
Like a sitting duck just waiting for the fall
You know
Yeah you got my back against the wall
 
Deep in the jungle
Camouflaged by all the falen leaves
A hand holds up the sky
While shamefully I make my plea
 
The alter's callin'
But my legs won't seem to stand
Guess I'm a coward
Scared to face the man I am
