TIG WIRED.

Gotta Be Safe

I hear the snap of my harness

I feel the strike on the steel

I'm trustin’ you with my tomorrows

Now tell me how does that feel

I’m going down in a heartbeat

Into the belly of this place

I wear my mask real tight

I’m playin’ it safe

I work with dangerous people,

I deal with dangerous minds

And I don’t take nothin’ for granted

I live in dangerous times.

Now I’ve worked this job by the numbers

So I don’t get buried without a trace

You’ve asked me 20 questions

Now I’m asking you,

Am I gonna be safe?

I don’t know where destiny

Has me headed for

What did you expect from me,

I’m playin’ it safe

That’s still my position

Ain’t lettin’ go of my superstition

I don’t wanna slip don’t wanna argue my case

I’m gonna do everything that it takes to bring it in safe

(I said to myself)

I gotta be safe

(Such a fine request)

Oh, bring it in safe

(I’m watchin’ my back)

I need to be safe

(checkin’ every last crack)

I used to take all the chances

I was a hot headed do what I can

I used to work to hurt

I spread an awful lotta dirt

I believed I really was superman

But now I’ve got a new disposition

I bought in to the old school plan

I'm playin’ hide and seek

For 2K a week

Or I’ll be takin’ home a nuclear tan

I got a woman who loves me

She knows the trials I face

And I know the best time to please her

Is when she’s feelin real safe

(Listen)

Pack it up tighten it down

You pick it up

Put it back where you found it.

I don’t need any grief

From some grunt on the street

Who don’t like the way that I wound it

(No)

I don’t know where destiny

Has me headed for

What did you expect from me,

I’m playin it safe that’s still my position

Hate lettin’ go of my superstition

I don’t wanna slip don’t wanna argue my case

I’m gonna do everything that it takes to bring it in safe

(Lay your bets)

I gotta be safe

(I ain’t done yet)

Oh, bring it in safe

(I’m doing my best)

I need to be safe

(Baby get dressed)

Every night and everyday

(It’s a matter of trust)

Yah, I’ll take It Out safe

(a serious rush)

I’m askin if it’s safe

(From the demons I see)

I love the smile on your face

(It’s killin me)
