But Over The Years.....

-

Recovering from the foundation of loss

I peal out of my mind

Only driven haywire

Dripping a bloody mess

All over this God forsaken town

Left to be this way

By my childhood best friends

I melted away like rubbish

And stood on my own at thee end of the struggle

But I didn't do it alone

I was invited into houses

From new friends

In new places

Then tooken by the hand

By the last woman I'll ever have

Now I cannot be shaken

Now I cannot fall

Now I won't be homeless

And now I'll never be broke

I am no longer the joke

To be laughed at now

I am no longer the loner

Wandering off behind the field

Though I am still the man

With a can in his hand

And a cap under his finger
