Lately I'm getting better
Wish I could stay sick with you
But there's too many egos left to bruise
Call it sin
You can call it whatever
Eating deep inside of you
Well if it were me it's all I'd ever do

Steal me now and forever
I'll steal something good for you
The criminal in me is no-one new

Till you find something better
When there's nothing left to use
And everything starts going down on you

I'm the generator
Firing whenever you quit
Yeah, whatever it is
You go out and it's on
Yeah can't you hear my motored heart
You're the one that started it

Send me out on a tether
Swing it round
I'll spin your noose
You let it down
I'll hang around with you
Till you find someone better
When there's no-one left to lose
Everyone keeps going down

I'm the generator
Firing whenever you quit
Yeah, whatever it is
You go out and it's on
Yeah can't you hear my motored heart
You're the one that started it
