BACK AGAINST THE WALL

SHE SITS IN A BOOTH
AND SIPS ON A SHOT OF VERMOUTH
SO PROUD AND BEAUTIFUL
WITH HER BACK AGAINST THE WALL

SHE SEES HIM STANDING WITH FRIENDS
SHE SMILES AND TRIES TO PRETEND
HE ISN’T THERE AT ALL
WITH HIS BACK AGAINST THE WALL

HE WALKS UP, WHISPERS IN HER EAR
“HOW ‘BOUT I BUY YOU A BEER”
SHE SMILES AND SAYS, “RYE TALL”
WITH HER BACK AGAINST THE WALL

HE LEANS IN CLOSE, SO SHE CAN’T SEE
SLIPS A PILL IN HER DRINK CASUALLY
THE LAST THING SHE CAN RECALL
IS HER BACK AGAINST THE WALL

SHE WAKES UP HURTING AND ALONE
SHE SLOWLY REACHES FOR THE PHONE
BUT THERE’S NO ONE SHE CAN CALL
CUZ HER BACK’S AGAINST THE WALL

SHE SIGHS A BROKEN SIGH
SHE DESPERATELY TRIES NOT TO CRY
THEY SAY THAT TIME HEALS ALL
YET HER BACK’S AGAINST THE WALL

SHE GROWS MORE ANGRY EVERYDAY
THINKS OF WAYS TO MAKE HIM PAY
SHE MAY BE WEAK AND SMALL
BUT HER BACK’S AGAINST THE WALL

AND NOW SHE WAITS RIGHT OUTSIDE
THERE’S NO WHERE HE CAN HIDE
SO SILENT IN THE HALL
WITH HER BACK AGAINST THE WALL

FINALLY HE STEPS OUT THE DOOR
SHE PULLS OUT HER DADDY’S FORTY FOUR
ONE CLEAN SHOT THROUGH HIS SKULL
WITH HIS BACK AGAINST THE WALL
YES HIS BACK’S AGAINST THE WALL
