Next One To Be Wed?


My brain

Is totally lost

I thought I got it back

But I must be trippin'

I can't see straight

And the details, I am missin'

Why is my world

Goin' down the drain?

I thought I "knew love"

But she threw me away

Life was a dream

'Til I woke up

Into a scheme

Puppet ruin's ev'rything

Now I'm not even me

Today I was at the clinic

With Life-tape on my mouth

Tomorrow I'll be at a wedding

Can I catch a garter belt somehow?

"You know" I want to

Will it help me to remember?

Probably not

But it's worth a shot

But if that's not the problem

"What'll I do?

It will all be a waste

And I end up not bein'

Who I need to be for her

What I need to be for our kids

If I don't get

What I wanted out of it
