lyrics

Medals

They say that true love waits, but my body slept around
With every new pretty face I got another notch in my belt
The years I bragged about beds finally sank in my chest
Heavy laden.

I don’t want these medals,
Hanging around my bedpost,
anymore, oh, oh, oh, anymore.

Over and over I toss and I turn,
Stuck thinking about lessons I can’t learn, I can’t learn.
All the women I’ve objectified
with this addiction to being inside
Of some skin each night.

I don’t want these medals,
Hanging around my bedpost,
anymore, oh, oh, oh, anymore.

All of the sex and all of the gold
All I have kept and all I have stole
Can’t fill this god shaped hole
This hallowed song plays in my head
This lust in my bones for status and skin
just makes me want to lay it all to rest
(rest, rest, rest)

I don’t want these medals,
Hanging around my bedpost,
anymore, oh, oh, oh, anymore.
