As I Jump Thru Obstacles

-

I've been "boink"ing out

__sounds of freedom

The kind you can live without

Like free will

__and all of it's lack of glory

Where the world falls flat

__I will drown in the flash of day

____that comes so quickly

______but dies, nightly

Whenever the truth trolley arrives

__I know I'll just be taking my time

____arriving onboard

______just to slip and die

No one's gonna come up to see me laugh

__while I'm tied up

I won't beat the boss

But I'll knock his wife up

Then when the rain

__tears them apart

____she will be mine

______and family life can start

The morning that the clouds disperse

__she will be dead

And then I'll be left alone

__a single dad

____with no woman

Thee unheard of hysterical giggles

__that seem to be passed around

____is like a cold I always catch

And when money's tight

__best believe the bed bugs will bite

But, nothing to fear

I welcome pain

And all it's meaning

Just about as awful as that sounds

The lights don't shine any brighter

__knowing that

If I were to sit and laugh

There would be nobody to laugh at

__but myself

But, not to worry

Some one else will show up

Funny, as all Hell

And that ain't half the story

She'll bore me

__until I kill her too

And then there'll be literally

__"no one to do"

The consequences will be "living without her"

Just like my baby momma

__I had to go without of

____after taking her life

______due to her bein' a bitch

Patterns like this should teach me

__to learn a better way

But people like me

__just can't change

I just watch myself

__drown

____day after day
