i think of you as treasure
but you think of me as dirt
and if i were a mineral
i know it wouldn't hurt
.
you never bow to anyone
i know i must abide
an extra button on your shirt
that hides away inside
.
the ocean's full of fishes
swiftly swimming up, came i
but yet you had much bigger fish
to catch and gut and fry
.
you'd think i would be happy
for i wouldn't have to die
an extra button on your shirt
and buried deep, i lie
.
but life will throw you curve balls
when the pitches seem so straight
when shoes leap to the other foot
you'll roll the dice of fate
.
and when you're torn asunder
from exposure to your greed
an extra button on your shirt
won't be there when you need
