"Right From The Horses' Teeth"

-

I left home

Then home left me

My cat as well

She's gone with it

And I've

__never been a pizza pie

But I still don't see what's wrong with my mind

My brain

__thought and thought and thought and thought

And all my personas could not

__get along

I woke up with bug bights

__I thought

But they were really bights from a frog

It went

Hop and hop and hop and hop

-

I ate my thoughts

They tagged along

And all my mourning feelings left

__and fled

Guns started being pointed at my grin

But I couldn't tell the story begins

With a lopsided approach to life

A hurting pain

But I will muster the strength

Because she wasn't

The sort of dame

Who actually was really loving me

And I will shoot the sunlight out of the sky

Knock over my barrel of laughs

__and begin

To wind up sinking

-

I heard it straight

Right from her mouth

That she was never mine

And she's not now

So I won't come around

I'll be locked in my mind

Sell my soul to common sense

And bridge these gaps between

__consciences and consciences

-

Polished chrome

Aimed at my dome

Is not the way

I'm gonna live

I've heard

__the world say bad things to me

But I can crawl out of what's wrong with me

It's my

__hopes and strengths and hearts and minds

Not always gonna live well, these

__days and nights

I came in contact with

__nothing

Jumped out of my brain just for a try

Only

Drooped and sagged and wept and slept

-

I only knew

But now I don't

This world is a free fall falling

__in air

Gamma rays pointed straight thru my noggin

And I don't care where the world will take me

As long as it takes me away from

The likes of you

Crawling on my hands and knees

But to get away

And stay away

My mastering of reality

Will be my only strengths to get me out of this

Alive and willing to live gone

__without you

So glad there's no you

-

I heard it straight

Right from her mouth

That she was never mine

And she's not now

So I won't come around

I'll be locked in my mind

Sell my soul to common sense

And bridge these gaps between

__consciences and consciences

-

( guitar riff )

-

I heard it straight

Right from her mouth

That she was never mine

And she's not now

So I won't come around

I'll be locked in my mind

Sell my soul to common sense

And bridge these gaps between

__consciences and consciences

-

I heard it straight

Right from her mouth

That she was never mine

She never was

She's not now

Now I won't come around
