Solemn Oath - Band of Horses

Maybe I should go back
I'm gonna think about that
A little bit more like I did before
Miserable and mad
This one kicks like a mule
Plays me for a fool
Breaks all the rules
It's doing it wrong, but it's moving along
Can be very cruel
Right in the door, I'm tired, I'm sore
Nary A Hi, no welcome home
Yet the minute I'm up, it's pissing me off
I was yelling so loud last night
I thought the cops would surely come

Six or six-two-five
Should keep me alive
Keep me alive
Now do a little turn
Careful with your words
Everything is fine
But I'm lucky as f_ck
It still ain't enough
Sick to my gut
Having to say
You sit here 'till the coast is clear
I'll send for you one day
I shouldn't repeat it
This sounds ridiculous
And I swore a solemn oath
Never to admit it's the harsh tones of criticism
Seep in to my bones

Look what I did, I'm happy with it
Aren't you happy for me?
I love you so much, I'm gonna throw up
Watch my stuff, hold this for me please
Try not to sound bitter
Or to fondly remember the dark times of the past
Like I don't deserve it or I'm not even worth it
I can do this or that
This or that
