lyrics

what do i do for you?
what do i do for you?
you're bleeding right through
your shirt once was white and new

what do i do for you?
what do i do for you?
i don't know how to stop the bleeding
oh in fact it seems i only feed it

if your blood was boiling and hot
i'd just stoke the flame and stir the pot

so please don't you come to me
in your agony
i am the scab you keep peeling off
and then i am the aspirin that you pop

which means i'm only gonna make you bleed
i'm only gonna make you bleed
i was never good to fix up much
like a lesion, laceration or hemorrhage

i am not your doctor, surgeon or nurse
you can count on me to always make it worse

and i'm sorry for the things i said
i know you're seeing red
but the person that you think i am
is just inside your head
i won't pretend that i'm your savior
your repairer or debt payer
and i cannot fix you
not now and not later
i'm sorry for the things i said
but i can't be your hospital bed
i promise it won't help your head
i know this from experience

so what do i do for you?
my remedy is not your cure
i tried to be your tourniquet
or an ineffective anesthetic opiate

so please don't you come to me
in your agony
i could not fix you if i tried
so go to sleep, go to sleep my little child
oh go to sleep, go to sleep my little child
