your little pawn

i′m just an object to you
something you can exploit and manipulate to your every wish
but i know no matter what you do to me
i'll always be by your side because
no matter how much you hurt me or how much you use me
i′ll always be your little pawn

i'm your little pawn
you just use me, sacrifice to god
you abuse me, i'm your little pawn
don′t confuse me, play the stretcher (?) now
you′ll just lose me

but you're throwing my heart to the wind
left my lonely side, let my life begin
don′t hold me on the side of life and watch it go by
i don't want to live my life when you′re holding it..

don't you see what you do, don′t you care?
when my love just stays up there?
i'm your little pawn

i'd do anything for you
i′d even sacrifice my life for you if i had to

cause i′m your little sacrificial lamb
you can skin me alive but i don't give a damn
you can throw me down, oh, light me on fire
cause i′m your every wish, your heart's desire

but you′re throwing my love into flames
never give me credit, but sure, give me pain
no, i don't know why i′m in love with you
when you treat me like the dirt under your shoes
what's the use? what's with you?

cause you′re throwing my heart to the wind
left my lonely side, let my life begin
don′t hold me on the side of life and watch it go by
i don't wanna live my life when you′re holding it..

don't you see what you do, don′t you care?
when my love just stays up there?
i'm your little pawn

i′m so obsessed with you
i don't know how much more of this torment i can go through
i'm only human, i can′t take much more

cause i′m your little pawn
you just use me, sacrifice to god
you abuse me, i'm your little pawn
don′t confuse me, play the stretcher (?) now
you'll just lose me

but you′re throwing my heart to the wind
left my lonely side, let my life begin
don't hold me on the side of life and watch it go by
i don′t want to live my life when you're holding it..
all those damn lies, oh, lies...

bobb standing

off his first album iron curtain innocence released in 1980

7inch cover

art for the two sides of... 7" released by mexican summer in 2009

bobb & the crippled dog band live in 1983

another new discovery for me... i saw the record cover at work in the new arrivals and was like ok what is this i gotta listen and i'm so glad i did !! i really loved this album and ppl have been telling me his second album is even better ?? is that possible ?? loll i still gotta check it out but i'm very excited to. apparently originals of this record go for like $1k so i had to settle for the repress, i only wish they had kept the exact same og cover cuz it's so good with the txt too lol he seems like a pretty elusive dude or maybe just still pretty undiscovered, so sorry for lack of extra stuff lol

bobb was interviewed for an article in a psych mag in 2012 and talked about most of his songs, this is what he shared about this track:

"the funny thing about this songs besides that it’s an obsessive-compulsive infatuation song about myself and my obsessive-compulsive personality is that the lovey-dovey allusions of grandeur still shine through in a romantic way. of course, i would say that because i still would like to consider myself romantic in a sort of twisted, topsy turvy kind of way, even though this song indicates otherwise. go figure." loll love it
