Ugly Duckling

Ugly Duckling - The Takedown

rate me

The blood starts pumping, the mind's alert

The goal is in focus, time to work

I've got raw nerves and a loss for words

So you better not knock, do not disturb

My heart palpitates insatiable

Follow my nose, aimed at a place to go

On the path I'm a pack of jungle cats

Who can hunt as long as the hunger lasts

I'm looking for a yes and I hate resistance

You can break it down to the basic instincts

Not gonna wait, better make it instant

Or else stand back at a safer distance

(Shhh) demons whispering

A little idea telling me it's the thing

So I dive down deep to apply surprise

Like a great white killing with lifeless eyes

I might try to stop but I'm out of control

And I'm not cooling off so now that you know

Don't allow me to blow cause I doubt I can hold

And I'm about to (ahhh)


You better give it to me

It's the take down

Give it to me, give it to me, give it to me

I'll take you down

Deep down inside you know you're wrong

Ah man, just relax, it's not that bad

Cause you took it too far and it's time to stop

Wait, take one minute to think

You gotta stay calm, you're on the brink

Of disaster, pause and catch yourself

Let's make some calls and get some help

You need to understand what a mess you're in

Before I notify your next of kin

It's not that bad, your life's a wreck

And I came to serve the reality check

You think that you're slick and sliding by

When you sit there sipping on cyanide

With the people in your life left high and dry

And don't try to hide those lying eyes

What do you know, I know you're wrong

I know that it's bad and it can't go on

Well what do you want me to do, admit it

Admit it, tell me that I'm right, forget it

I'm out of here and if I burn a bridge (bleep) you

I don't know if I'll return to this

See, It's too late to manipulate

A twist of fate and a lucky break

I am what I am, not a role I can act

And there's no going back and you don't know the half

So if you want to judge and find a fault

I'll bring this talk to a grinding halt

[Chorus x2]
