The Underdog- Spoon


Picture yourself in the living room
your pipe and slippers set out for you
I know you think that it ain’t too far

But I hear the call of a lifetime ring
felt the need to get up for it
oh you cut out the middleman
get free from the middleman

You got no time for the messenger,
got no regard for the thing that you don’t understand,
you got no fear of the underdog,
that’s why you will not survive!

I want to forget how conviction fits
but can I get out from under it?
Can I gut it out of me?
It can’t all be wedding cake
It can’t all be boiled away
I try but I can’t let go of it
Can’t let go of it,

Cause you don’t talk to the water boy
and there’s so much you could learn but you don’t want to know,
You will not back up an inch ever,
that’s why you will not survive.


Best song.
Vintage sailbot blue skirt, vintage tank, Victorias Secret pink lace tank, vintage belt, Jeffrey Campbell bejeweled heels.
