Limp
Fiona Apple Lyrics


You wanna make me sick;
You wanna lick my wounds
Don't you, baby?
You want the badge of honor when you save my hide
But you're the one in the way
Of the day of doom, baby
If you need my shame to reclaim your pride

And when I think of it, my fingers turn to fists
I never did anything to you, man
No matter what I try, you beat me with your bitter lies
So call me crazy, hold me down
Make me cry; get off now, baby
It won't be long till you'll be lying limp in your own hands

You feed the beast I have within me
You wave the red flag, baby you make it run run run
Standing on the sidelines, waving and grinning
You fondle my trigger, then you blame my gun

And when I think of it, my fingers turn to fists
I never did anything to you, man
But no matter what I try, you'll beat me with your bitter lies
So call me crazy, hold me down
Make me cry; get off now, baby
It won't be long till you'll be lying limp in your own hands

And when I think of it, my fingers turn to fists
I never did anything to you, man
But no matter what I try, you'll beat me with your bitter lies
So call me crazy, hold me down
Make me cry; get off now, baby
It won't be long till you'll be lying limp in your own hands

Lyrics

You wanna make me sick
You wanna lick my wounds
Don't you baby?
You want the badge of honour 
When you save my hide
But you're the one in the way
Of the day of doom, 
Baby
If you need my shame 
To reclaim your pride

And when I think of it, 
My fingers turn to fists
I never did anything to you man
But no matter what I try, 
You'll beat me with
Your bitter lies
So call me crazy, 
Hold me down
Make me cry; 
Get off now, baby
It won't be long till you'll be 
Lying limp in your own hands

You feed the beast 
I have within me
You wave the red flag,
Baby 
You make it run 
Run 
Run
Standing on the sidelines, 
Waving and grinning
You fondle my trigger, 
Then you blame my gun

And when I think of it, 
My fingers turn to fists
I never did anything to you man
But no matter what I try, 
You'll beat me with
Your bitter lies
So call me crazy, 
Hold me down
Make me cry
Get off now baby
It won't be long till you'll be 
Lying limp in your own hands

And when I think of it, 
My fingers turn to fists
I never did anything to you man
But no matter what I try, 
You'll beat me with
Your bitter lies
So call me crazy, 
Hold me down
Make me cry
Get off now baby
It won't be long till you'll be 
Lying limp in your own hands

This whole record got me through my abusive marriage and subsequent divorce. It’s so personal that I feel uncomfortable listening to it around other people. It makes me feel exposed

Dick Head

I'm glad you made it through that. This entire album is amazing. She writes songs that speak to people in different ways. Paper Bag and I Know are definitely two of my favorite songs of all time.

I was never able to word how her art does me until your description

Jennifer Maerzke

I felt this

Mark Nasia

Agreed, same here, helped me thru my divorce and for many years I wouldn’t listen to her music because it was stamped on that period of my life, which I didn’t want to relive. Now I can listen and look back and think, well at least I survived that period and this album helped so much.

David Angell

@Christina T You're introverted, maybe? And that's ok. Plenty understand what you meant.

there's a lot of memorable lines from this song like for example 
"if you need my shame to reclaim your pride" 
"when i think of it my fingers turn to fist"
"you fondle my trigger then you blame my gun"
this chick is so hardcore.

You want the badge of honor when you save my hide

You're the one in the way of the day of doom

"My fingers turn to fists" voices out like a riot.
