I'm tapping out
Honey you can take the title
I thought I was man enough
But boy she sure knows
How to dismantle

My self esteem
Is risin' I'm an iron kettle
Won't you please let it steep
Before it turns to misery?

I showed up decent, fully-dressed
But my decency and clothes
They both left
If you keep talkin' to yourself
You'll lose yourself in alterations
Just like I did.

And all that callin out,
It didn't do no good,
It only left me tired,
It only left us tired

Illuminate a foreign sky
My pile of coins provides
My palette's blue, my mouth is dry

In time we found the culprit was rust
The act of boredom patiently releasing decay
I hope that statement is enough
If not, then the infection left will surely hold its place.

And all that howlin' out,
It didn't do no good
The moon just sways my thoughts,
They danced with time and loss

Illuminate a foreign sky
My pal Luck always provides
My palette's blue, my mouth is dry

I can't do this by myself, I could use a little help.
