Want Me Gone? Look No Further


So the justice that's displaced inside my heart

Can all vanish, as I toss out my Pop-Tarts

When I kill the world, what will be left of us?

Just the crowding around the lives that turn to dust

I could walk out on my love for you, and run

But wouldn't I be having too much fun?

As I simply waste away, and crumble into ruins

What is left of us will be displayed in a museum

Where it's most often viewer will be my brother, William

And I will go on looking for a new love

I'll completely forget that you were ever the one

And, yes, everybody will call me "dumb"

But I can't stand here, trying to keep your heart

That you threw back in my face, just like an art

Like some beach wale that thought our love was crap

And decided to just throw away the map

As she was claiming to ev'ry one she knew

That me and her were just not gonna do

And the Banquette meals that I threw up

After brushing my teeth after dinner to clean up

Will force me to have to eat dinner again

As my chickens just lay in a bed, clucking like hens

And just around the bend, of the mountain of goodbye

If we should ever meat again, we will surely die
