RUB ME OUT

LAW IS THE PENCIL,THE UTENSIL
THAT YOU USE,TO DRAW THE LINE
INDENTIKIT FOR THAT NEW OUTFIT
THERE ARE MANY NAMES ON THAT LIST
AND ONE IS MINE

HOW YOU WISH THAT I WASN'T HERE
THERE ARE WAYS TO MAKE ME DISAPPEAR
TURN THE PAGE AND IT'S ALL CLEAR

RUB ME OUT

ERASE MY VOICE
REDUCE MY FREEDOM OF CHOICE
KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE BUTTON
SO YOU'RE READY TO DELETE
I'M NO PERMANENT FIXTURE
YOU CAN TAKE ME OUT OF THE PICTURE
YOU CAN ALTER THE MACHINE
SO THE ERROR WON'T REPEAT

HOW YOU WISH THAT I WASN'T HERE
THERE ARE WAYS TO MAKE ME DISAPPEAR
TURN THE PAGE AND IT'S ALL CLEAR

RUB ME OUT

THEY MUST BE CORRECT
WITH WHATEVER THEY SELECT
I'M THE BUZZ OF INTERFERENCE
ON YOUR SYSTEMS CASSETTE
WHEN I'VE LEFT WITHOUT A TRACE

LIKE A SPOT ON YOUR FACE
THERE'LL BE OTHERS TO TAKE MY PLACE
OTHER DEFECTS

HOW YOU WISH THAT I WASN'T HERE
THERE ARE WAYS TO MAKE ME DISAPPEAR
TURN THE PAGE AND IT'S ALL CLEAR

RUB ME OUT
