The Love That Won't Come Back


I want crack

__to put in my crack pipe

I want love

__to have in my damned life

Oh what the Hell

I guess I can't have neither

Not when I'm me

__and not you

Not when my heart

__don't know what to do

How to deal

How to feel

In the wreck of the world

I stand


About to fall down

No one to hold me up

Nobody seems to give a fuck


__fuck 'em!

Maybe I don't want them to

I'm supposed to do this on my own

__aren't I?

I don't want the world to suffer

I want a future for our planet

But they all want me to suffer

Even the voices tell me "fuck you"

Just because I wrote this

No hookers in this whore house


Or I'd be gettin' laid right now

I don't know why the building

__doesn't just change it's name

____to "Lofts"

It can't be a "Hotel"

__if people live here now

So it obviously ain't a hotel anymore

There ain't no ho to tell to fuck you

Not in this building

I've been letting the chips land where they fall

It never includes having a boody call

I'll eat the crackers in the cupboard now

Food is my only friend

But just like a hooker

Somebody's gotta pay for it

But at least I can afford food on my check

Not like the hookers

__that I have to wait forever

____for some one to buy for me again
