Dead Batteries

You say close your eyes as you dig through a bag of treats
The next thing I know I‘m knocked off my feet
And I’m just wading in a pool of blood
I’d move if I didn’t hurt so much, hurt so much

Why, why are you always so cruel to me, cruel to me?
And I’m, I’m just a utility,
You’ll pay for me
Then use me as you please
And when you’re done with me, you’ll toss me out
Like a pair of dead batteries, Dead Batteries

Don’t get me wrong, cause you’ll just twist what I say
But I’m afraid if I take to long, the atmosphere will slip away
But every time you take a cheat shot at me
I’m just itching to hit you in your dignity

Why, why are you always so cruel to me, cruel to me?
And I’m, I’m just a utility,
You’ll pay for me
Then use me as you please
And when you’re done with me, you’ll toss me out
Like a pair of dead batteries, Dead Batteries

I am an object…
A token for the bus
I am a tool for your project
Just grabbed me in the rush
You’ll turn off the lights
So as not to waste energy
But despite our endless fights
You’ll never be a friend to me
Just an item of entertainment
Recently outdated
You never finished your full payment
And you never cleaned the mess you created

Why, why are you always so cruel to me, cruel to me?
And I’m, I’m just a utility,
You’ll pay for me
Then use me as you please
And when you’re done with me, you’ll toss me out
Like a pair of dead batteries, Dead Batteries

Why, why are you always so cruel to me, cruel to me?
And I’ve, I’ve got the ability
To end this hostility
And vaccine for the disease
When I’m tired of being such a sucker
I’m not a pair of dead batteries, Dead Batteries
I’m not a pair, of frickin’ dead batteries
