Utter Gracelessness


Are you really gone?

Will you come back this Wednesday?

I was just starting to like you

I even made you number 112

But unlike the dream where you burned the list

You're probably just the 112th. failure

"God, how could I fail 112 times?

I thought she was mine?"


I guess I'm just gonna have to nip this one in the bud

How can I ever obtain any one?

The days drag slowly passed

And I'm losing my mind, alas

The way that a cat walks down a street

Has nothing to do with eating meat

So I know you'll have nothing to do with me

When I break down and self destruct

At you being gone and stuff

I'll stuff myself with pizza

And go to town on my dinner

I am definitely not a "winner"

God has shown me that

This is just your way of gettin' rind of my ass

Well, good job!

It's working
