Can't Wait To Go Off


Leek on my heart attack

And leftover ham can give me a stroke

To bitterise my emotionless platter

Can only group up a bunch of goodbyes

And lock down the wind from the pipe

As a hurting world can open up

And hear all the hurt roars of the sheep

My agony nearly swallowed me alive

The second I looked over

The second I died

Having swam nowhere

Having swam ashore

No ugly nightmare

Can smear the blood on the tape

But if it weren't for "forever"

Just taking too long

Then how can the Big Macs

Ever start their journey

Along their way down to my belly?

I aim not my heavy

Baggy eyed marbles

That were lost from my skull

Don't look at me like there's no tomorrow

Just eat the scraps off my plate

And hand over what once could have any

Of my beinglessness form of formation

And take the thinking thought bomb

As far away from me as you can
