Those You Just Can't Tame

by Duncan Jones

I got another compliment last night
A mighty fine thing to say
Sure it feels great, like I'm done with the wait
But everything's still the same today
I've heard it before, "Hey, you got any more?
Because that one was pretty damn good!"
Their intentions are nice, it's probably good advice
Well, I've never done what I should

So it's back to the rhymes ticking by with the times
No dollar's ever bought any more
And while I've been sittin' tryin' we just lost another lion
One day, boys, we're gonna settle the score

Gotta have no shame and talk about your own name
But I'm the one who's gotta live with me
Oh the instafame world seems to work for pretty girls
In the end it ain't a way to be
I can hold the crowd without a single word loud
For a moment kinda like the new king
With smiles and hand shakin' and a bit of picture takin'
Just imagine if I could sing

So it's back to the rhymes ticking by with the times
No dollar's ever bought any more
And while I've been sittin' tryin' we just lost another lion
One day, boys, we're gonna settle the score

Another middle of the night and only bills in sight
Soon it's gonna have to pay off
Or maybe being broke is a part of the joke
Hard to tell if you're close or way off
No it wasn't mama's plan that I'd be workin' with my hands
To me I guess it's all the same
Yeah we can wipe off the dirt and put on a polo shirt
But there are those that you just can't tame

So it's back to the rhymes ticking by with the times
No dollar's ever bought any more
And while I've been sittin' tryin' we just lost another lion
One day, boys, we're gonna settle the score
