Black Nurse By GlassJaw

Now, I apologize for any omitted lyrics in this installation; I am relying on the “interweb’s” variations. And I am at work so I can’t listen along to pin down the faults. Although he is pretty clear speaking in this song so I am hoping that the contributors do him justice.

It doesn’t help that I’ve been slowly contracting some relentless illness that continues to ravage my respiratory system. But, I digress… enjoy!

Beyond poor
Beyond ostracized
Destined to be obscured.
Beyond right in your offset eyes

On dominus ground
If what I say isn’t true
I do it to reason with you
Kiss and no tell
The police down at the motel

I’m aware, I see
Yet somewhere as you reach down
I’m afraid you’ll want me to go without.

I’m aware, I see; yes, I do
Yet somewhere as you reach down
I’m afraid you’ll want me to go without
To return what I’ve given out.

Beyond poor,
Beyond ostracized
Destined to be obscured
Beyond right in your husband’s eyes
Does he bow when you’re around?

What I say isn’t true
But I do it to reason with you
Kiss and no tell
The last man in what the first to take the vow

I’m aware, I see; yes, I do
Yet somewhere as you reach down
I’m afraid you’ll want me to go without

I’m aware, I see; yes, I do
Yet somewhere as you reach down
I’m afraid you’ll want me to go without
Return what I’ve given out.
