Sleater-Kinney – The Dog / The Body lyrics
[Verse 1]
I'm just the dog, I'm just the body tonight
I'm just the fist without the will to fight
And when the shadow comes, I'll have a place to go and hide
You always said my head was what I'd never leave behind
I'm just a sketch, I'm just an outline tonight
I am the dog, I am the body, alright

[Chorus]
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Can't keep saying the same old lines
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Gonna go and be alone
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Can't see my way out of this night
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
If you go, I'll be alone

[Verse 2]
I'm just the prop, I'm just the puppet tonight
I'm just the trick without the magic, alright
And when the darkness comes
And I don't have the nerve, the might
Uninvite myself and turn out the light, goodnight

[Chorus]
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Can't keep saying the same old lines
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Gonna go and be alone
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Can't see my way out of this night
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
If you go, I'll be alone

[Bridge]
If you wanna go
Can't find a reason not to leave
If you feel unknown
Can't find your name or the dream
Nothing feels like home
Can't find a wall to hold

[Chorus]
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind (Don't mind)
Can't keep saying the same old lines
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
Gonna go and be alone
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind (Don't mind)
Can't see my way out of this night
Baby, baby, baby, I don't mind
If you go, I'll be alone
Baby, baby, I don't mind
I'm tired of saying the same old lines
Baby, baby, I don't mind
If you go, I'll be alone
(Don't mind)

[Outro]
I am the dog, I am the body tonight
If you hear me howl, know I made it out alive
