CAGE THE ELEPHANT


Back Against The Wall Lyrics

Tonight I'll have a look and try to find my face again
Buried beneath this house my spirit screams and dies again
Outback 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 wanna get away, I need to get away

Blanket of silence makes me wanna sink my teeth in deep
Burn all the evidence, a fabricated disbelief
Pull back the curtains took a look 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 in between the shadows of my yesterday
I wanna get away, I need to get away

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 sittin' duck just waitin' for the fall
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

Deep in the jungle camouflaged by all the fallen 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

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 wanna get away, I need to get away

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 sittin' duck just waitin' for the fall
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

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 sittin' duck just waitin' for the fall
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

It's about making a decision you can't turn back from that's so major it changes you beyond even your own recognition which sounds like the music business to me...

Sounds like there was someone that was rather controlling in this relationship. The person would have him do everything and expect silent submission. When the opportunity was given to go, he denied it
