Featuring Rebecca Jenkins

lyrics

Cut Me down to Nothing

The egg had broke
the scheme had hatched
a man lay bloody on his back
so grandiose, so adios amigo
she called it quick and she called it good
she was right about the boys in the neighbourhood
she said, lay down low and you will be forgotten
But i beat my chest
and i cursed the gods
and i band together brothers of a different blood
and i saw the world as a place of glorious torment

Cut me down to nothing
strip away the blues
tell me about the goodness
that i may learn from you

Strange fruit rolls from Lady Day
you kind of look like her in a certain way
so i bought you a white gardenia
i hurt so many and i loved so few
before i'd tell my confessors what was really true
i'd strike a match and watch the church fall to ashes
Cut me down to nothing
strip away the blues
tell me about the goodness
that i may learn from you
