From the recording The Hill

Lyrics

Hold me down for a moment, I think I’m floating
Grab that slingshot and pop me ‘fore I fly away
There ain’t no words I can figure are bringing me down to that room
Maybe you heard I was bigger, but it just isn’t true
I can’t stand to hear this from you

Cool me down for a moment, I think I’m burning
Grab that ice-chest and douse me ‘til I start to freeze
I don’t want to feel these emotions while I picture you there in that room
Truth is as clear as the ocean; we are what we do
But I can’t stand to hear this from you

Should I cover my ears like a child? Close my eyes pretending I’m invisible to you? Take a pill in denial? Smile as I swallow any semblance of the truth when I know what I hear? Still I’d rather sit down innocent than stand up to my fears so…

Lock me up in a cell, I should be committed
Pull that straight jacket tighter before I resist
I don’t want to move from this corner; I’m comfortable here in my room
A single man’s views and opinions are better than two
‘Cause I can’t stand to hear this
I can’t stand
I can’t stand it
No I can’t
I can’t stand to hear this from you
