Marianas Trench – Desperate Measures lyrics

Gonna make a heart-throb out of me
Just a bit of minor surgery
These desperate times call for desperate measures
I'll give you something to cry about
Show some skin, and would be cache
How could you let this get to desperate measures now?

For a first effort this,
Feels kinda last ditch
I guess this just
Got kinda drastic
Trust us you just fell off the bus, baby

I can't let this, I can't let this go

When I got you right where I want you
I been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now

I can't let this, I can't let this go

Have a piece of American dream
Open up, and swallow, on your knees
And say "Thank you"
I'd like some desperate measures, please

For a first effort this,
Feels kinda last ditch
I guess this just
Got kinda drastic
Trust us, you just fell off the bus, suckers
Yeah, well, payback is a mother fucker

I can't let this, I can't let this go

When I got you right where I want you
I been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now

I can't let this, I can't let this go

Go Forever, for worse, or better
My poor heart will only surrender
Go forever, for worse, or better
My poor heart will only surrender, now

I can't let this, I can't let this go

When I got you right where I want you
I been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now

I can't let this, I can't let this go

When I got you right where I want you
I been pushing for this for so long
Kiss me, just once, for luck
These are desperate measures now

I can't let this, I can't let this go

    It's totally about doing what you need to in a desperate place. Whether it's true desperation or simply moving up in the world, it's about doing whatever is needed to make it to where they want to be. "show some skin, and would be cache.
    How could you let this get to desperate measures now? " cache means something hidden. How could you let it get to desperate measures? Than onto "i'd like some desperate measures please". Do what you have to, than it becomes the go to.

    I don't think that hes talking about somethin gross when he says "open up and swallow on your knees and say thank you.. ", cux if you think of it, he writes songs based on real events in his life. Things hes going through. He eaven said it in an interview, his songs are like his diary. So I don't think that's what hes talking about. His lyrics usually have a deeper meaning. And knowing his style and the types of songs he writes, I honestly don't think he'll write about something disgusting like that.

He eaven said it in an interview, his songs are like his diary, so I don't really think that he's referring to somethin rally gross when he says that.
