Sleater Kinney – How To Play Dead lyrics

Do you want to try
Go ahead and try
You want it now
But that's the way it goes

Do you want to hurt me
Go ahead and try

You're feeling sick
You poor thing
Clean up your mess
Then i'll suck your dick

Didn't i tell you
It wasn't fun

You want to show me how to play dead
How to be still
How to please you

If i don't give you
Just what you need
It hurts you
I'm such a tease

You're just a boy
Who likes to whine

I'm gonna choke
Can't feel a thing
You say go deeper
You like it when i scream

And then you tell me
I'm so good

You want to show me how to play dead
How to be still
How to please you

What's good for you
Is not for me
What's over for you
Is not over for me

I won't suck your big ego
And swallow all my pride
I'm spitting out your memory
And stains you left inside of me

I'm sick of being full with what you fed me
What i choked down
Rip it out of me, you wanna rip it out of me

I'll show you how it feels to be dead
How it feels to be held still
How i wish you were dead
