Basic'ly, You Can Leave Now


The malice of my unstoppable time

Seems to splatter across the sea of blame

Where the waters run

__only to trap me to my seat

And hit me on the head

How did I get here?

What is wrong with the way I think?

Sloppy Joes is not what I wanna eat

I just wanna pluck a French fry's feathers

As if it had any

If I'm unsuccessful at such

__I guess it will show

If my mind boggles you

__please let me know

I've often found nothing wrong with time

__per say

But I wouldn't give a rat's ass if you did

If you believe love is attainable

You are self righteous

__and should be shot

Now and then, you will come across my world

__and piss all over it

____I know

But I don't care

The whereabouts of how awful the world is

Is located in the background noises

Where the sheep crawling under the covers

Just don't know, where they, themselves, have been

But it doesn't amuse me

__that you find this rhyme, a riddle

You may just sit there

__and with your thumbs, just twiddle

But if you don't pick out your own peanut butter

Your P.B. & J. sandwich may not be

__to your own liking

But if you do not get away from me in time

Your life will be in danger

And you just might die

But had I ever gave a shit

There may or may not have been

Any truth to this reasoning

That you may or may not pick up on

Having the thoughts in your head

__fall out, and splatter

As I sit and lick this pancake batter

The maladapted ways

Which was brought about, so unwilling

They kind of smack me in the face

Leaving me stranded

__with scars

____up and down my body

But I don't care

__if you don't show up to the party

You'll just be the laughing stock of town

When I'm through with you

And nobody else will love you

So say "goodbye" to me

And forget I ever loved you
