The Avett Brothers – Locked Up lyrics
I can’t take the criticism
I’m heating up with cynicism

All the colors in the prism entering my eyes
Still can’t change my mind

I’m a stubborn goat getting older
A cube of ice getting colder

A frozen heart and frozen shoulders that is what I’ve got
A sweetheart I am not

Now I’ll soften when it pays the bills, I’ll love you in exchange for thrills
I’ll surface calls with draw kills I can smell fresh blood from miles away

I can’t be locked up this way, I can’t be locked up this way
I can’t be locked up like this, I can’t be locked up this way

Now I have been their slave but I’m tired of work
A jackhammer tired of jerking

A booty shaker tired of twerking you can laugh all you want
Soon enough though I’ll be gone

I’m a dying fly on the wall
I’m a teenage girl who just won’t call

I’m a deflated basketball no needle to be found
I just want to be around

So I can roam, So I can bounce, So I can roam out of this town

I can’t be locked up like this, I can’t be locked up like this
I can’t be locked up this way, I can’t be locked up like this

Now I’m the worst ship that was ever built
Started sinking soon as the champagne spilled

All the dirty secrets in my quilt, they won’t come out in the wash
Somebody help, my gosh

I’m a beating heart off the beaten path
The god of shame fill my wrath can my filthy soul take a bath in the light of you, in the light of truth, in the light of you

No, I can’t be locked up like this, I can’t be locked up like this
I can’t be locked up this way, oh no I can’t be locked up like this

I can’t be locked up like this, I can’t be locked up like this
I can’t be locked up like this, I can’t be locked up like this
