I The Mighty - Cutting Room Floor Lyrics

If hell broke out in the White House, how long would it take for word to carry here?
Would it stay hush hush till the weather changed, till the sun warmed the snow and fears?
Well I would wanna know. I would wanna know, and it's strange to me that you could barely care.
You say, like this stolen ground no one's golden now. We're all made of bronze and steel.

Well why don't you leave, just leave. You make a horrible point, with your eyes looking low.
So leave, just leave. You're on the cutting board, the cutting board of the cutting room floor.

You're gonna wake to a whole different scene.
All your pretty lights and neon signs replaced with green.
And as you curse the river bed that you throw your compass in,
there's comfort 'round the bend.
But this house is filled with crooks and liars.
We regret to inform you there's no love here for you.
(I know you're coming with the worst intentions. Bring the flood)
So take your hooks and pliers.
We regret to inform you, you're the lowest form.

So leave, just leave. You make a horrible point with your eyes looking low.
So leave, just leave. You're on the cutting board, the cutting board of the cutting room floor.

You've got this crazy notion.
You've ripped this out by the seems.
You can't even fathom how with every word you try to say,
You dig yourself a hole you can't escape.
And that's a little bit more than what you came here for.
Isn't it funny how little respect
You get when you burn the world for a paycheck?

Leave, just leave. You make a horrible point with your eyes looking low.
So leave, just leave. You're on the cutting board, the cutting board of the cutting room floor.

I The Mighty Cutting Room Floor Comments
  1. Victoria Toxic

    I still have your CD in my car from years ago. This song reminds me of so much.

    Obviously corrupt government is one, but some lines remind me of my abusive ex (why don’t you leave, just leave) and being basically kicked out of home (there’s no love for you here)

  2. iluminatethesky

    So, is this song about President Trump? Cause it sure makes sense.

    "But this house is filled with Crooks and Liars, we regret to inform you there's no love here for you"

    "Why don't you leave, Just Leave"

    I wish he would leave :D

  3. staceybsbs

    love this soooo much STILL

  4. Jackson Bell

    Like the band but they ripped of Say Anything’s “You’re The Wanker, If Anyone is.”

    The “Please just leave” line is exactly the same as from Say Anythings Song

  5. Tim Scheive

    Brings back memories

  6. Madop67

    "If hell broke out in the White House" Boy, do I have a story for you

  7. Ger Coalesce

  11. Madison Wieczorkowski

  12. Apple Crisp

    This song reminds me of Falling In Reverse, I love it-


    dont know how, but i feel like that is demeaning to some aspect.


    @InfinityOnHi Haha yeah xD, FIR is sometimes very serious and sometimes too playful with their lyrics, which overpowers their seriousness which makes people not take them seriously.

  13. peregrine

    wow their subject matter is all over the place it's awesome

  14. Aubree Dunn

    Thank you pandora!

  15. Mady Diaz

    I loooove I the Mighty :33

  16. Maya Deg

  17. TheFredjoe

    Okay, a little bit homo.....

  18. larry stylinson


  19. Daniel Davis

    Satori is mostly about ex girlfriends and the lyrics are still freaking perfect. now THAT'S talent.

  20. LefthandGitR991

    Great Song but I don't know what dafuq he's singin' about... -.- Need some help guys

    Mason Jones

    +LefthandGitR991 I don't claim to be an expert on song lyrics, but since noone has answered you in three years I'll put my two cents in and you can judge it yourself. I think it's mainly about not being prepared for the world to change. Reasons why. #1 He says that he'd wanna know and that it's strange to him that you barley care. #2 He makes a lot of hints towards the government and corruption. When he says Neon signs replaced with green (Green represents money most of the time. He also mentions the white house and A house being filled with Crookss and Liars. #3 I think when he says you are the cutting board on the cutting room floor he is saying that everyone on that "Cutting room Floor" aka the world. Is going to use you "The Cutting board." Hoped that helped.

  22. Be Right Back Covers

    Has no one noticed how interesting these lyrics are? Seriously some well thought out lyrics. You can tell that they put effort into it and didn't take the easy way out and sing about their ex girlfriends. Very cool.
