to the man

i'll make out like it was all but pretend
no truth behind what seemed a harmless dare
expecting no more of it than to be your friend
oh don't give a shit, this isn't your affair
it's half my fault plus i'll get all your share
carry and deliver, yeah right that's all i do
but i'll survive you none the worse for wear
- i've been held by better men than you

i've known no guy who sees it to the end
born quitters to the man, as sure as air
no solid ground on which one might depend
oh don't give a shit, this isn't your affair
i've known no guy who knows enough to care
who acts as if he ever had a clue
but macho excuses won't get you anywhere
- i've been held by better men than you

this ordeal into which i must descend
i've countless hopes it's trying hard to scare
erasing every breath i have to spend
oh don't give a shit, this isn't your affair
what i hold deep inside for you's my prayer
that when no longer held, that won't die too
like your love did, wrapped up in your own snare
- i've been held by better men than you

then see you in hell, we'll wait up for you there
oh don't give a shit, this isn't your affair
so one final word to go and then i'm through
- i've been held by better men than you
