Effigy

Say what you want but you’re not getting through to me
Can you take it? Can you take it?
Pray if you want but you can’t get a piece of me
Can you save this? Can you save this?
Don’t keep saying I’m afraid of a new thing!
Don’t you hate that? Really hate that?
So stay if you want but we’ll burn you an effigy
So separate us, separate us

‘Cause I’ve been waiting for something beautiful
Can you serve it up for me?
I’ve been thinking that something’s wrong with me
Clear it up for me
And I’ve been hoping for something meaningful
Can you serve it up for me?
And I’ve been looking for something
To keep me coming back for more

Say what you want but you’re not getting through to me
Can you take it? Can you take it?
Pray if you want but you can’t get a piece of me
Can you save this? Can you save this?
Don’t keep saying I’m afraid of a new thing!
Don’t you hate that? Really hate that?
So stay if you want but we’ll burn you an effigy
So separate us, separate us

‘Cause I’ve been waiting for something beautiful
Can you serve it up for me?
I’ve been thinking that something’s wrong with me
Clear it up for me
And I’ve been hoping for something meaningful
Can you serve it up for me?
And I’ve been looking for something
To keep me coming back for more

Say what you want but you’re not getting through to me
Can you take it? Can you take it?
Pray if you want but you can’t get a piece of me
Can you save this? Can you save this?
Don’t keep saying I’m afraid of a new thing!
Don’t you hate that? Really hate that?
So stay if you want but we’ll burn you an effigy
So separate us, separate us
Say what you want but you’re not getting through to me
Can you take it? Can you take it?
Pray if you want but you can’t get a piece of me
Keep me coming back for more
