Danko Jones – The Masochist lyrics

Sad songs get me so down.
Goddamn I love 'em to death.
The sadder, the better, the better
The redder eye
And all that jazz.

Here's hoping for a heart attack.
Or 'til at least I bleed.
Who said I love it when the sun comes out?
I'm always praying for rain.

Just call me the masochist
In the blink of an eye or a flick of the switch.

Avoid eye contact and look down.
That's easy for me.
Everybody says I'm negative
But they should shut up and let me be.

I think I got this all figured out.
Give me a reason to scream.
It's all bottled up and waiting to get out.
I never run out of steam.

Just call me the masochist.
In the blink of an eye or a flick of the switch

Just call me the masochist.
Your're often nice, I'm always pissed.

Just call me the masochist.
In the blink of an eye or a flick of the switch.

Just call me the masochist.
You're on thin ice, I'm always pissed.

I'm always, I'm always, I'm always pissed!
