Strip Away My Conscience - feat Rachel Bloom - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Lyrics:

Rebecca:
Hear me out.

My whole life
I’ve wanted to be bad...

To be bad.
To be bad.
To be bad.

But whenever I tried
the result was always sad

(so sad, so pathetic, weak and sad)

However now I know a certain beau
who doesn’t worry about what’s decent or right
(that’s you)

Nathaniel:
Yeah, I got that.

So how ‘bout now
you teach me how
to be ruthless and cruel
yeah I’m ready tonight!

So strip away my conscience
peel away my values, rip off
my compassion with your teeth.
Pound away my morals
spank off all my kindness,
expose the dormant
bitch that lies beneath!

You devil lead me to the dark side
like a lamb to the slaughter
and do me in a hot tub
filled with evil 'steada water
Let’s make war not love
all night and day
It’s hot here in hell so
strip it all away.

Stop hitting yourself.

Yeah baby - you’re a soul sucking
corporate piece of trash who
only cares about sex, lies and cash!
So tell me ‘bout your sins
and shock me with their luredness.
Let me be your pupil, let me choke
on your cocksuredness.

(Innuendo)

Strip away my conscience.
Tear away my jew guilt.
Kiss around my sense of right and wrong.

But not on it. it’s sensitive.

Baby it’s such foreplay
if you slither like a moray.

(eel)

It’s worth the discomfort of my thong
You’re like professor snape
in his sad dungeons with his potions
‘cause somehow you don’t have
that sucky thing called emotions!
50 shades of morally grey
and thongs are so uncomfortable so...

Strip it all away...
Strip it all away...
Strip it all away...
Strip it all away!!!

That was just up my butt.
