I Have To Shake You Off


Diamonds are the devils way

Of making man broke

Love is a joke

Made to make us poor

Well, screw that paper rout

Now sex is what I'm about

There's gotta be a freek

A freek for freeky me

No woman in my heart, God, please

I'll swarm around

Down the town

__of angry mobs

That yell "so what?!"

__at my shiny new toy

Are the words "too late"

Used too often among my works?

I better put the butter

__on the cheese

Make a heffa sleep with me

Maybe I'll be blind to see

That I need to be reminded

To never mix love and lust

For, I'm not perfect enough

Screen me for some lies

My hearts, let's all say goodbye

Many now-and-thens

Will wake me in my death

To climb abroad the certain ships

That will take me to my next song

I can't forget, but I will

I won't remember, but I do

I do, and I love you

But not a thing to do

But erase you from my heart

You're just not to love

And if you did

You did not love me first


What a bore

I'll get rid of you some more

Maybe at thee end

I will remember we were friends

Why love a friend?

Why not fuck an acquaintance instead?

The words to my rooted knowledge

Describe nothing but honest freedom

So take your freedom

__and stop using me

I don't like it

Never did

And never will

Stay your toy

You've destroyed my future in the making

Throwing me away like that

What am I? junk?

Lose my number then

Be that way

I only love you

But you don't give a shit

Go ahead and get bent

Over like we are over

Done off the top of your head

This is worse than thee end

Because you won't let it begin
