"The Door Is Ajar"



Thee actions took

__may split open my head

The cause of this

Are just what the

__causes seem to be

No feelings felt

Can be permanent enough

__to wash out my own head

And clean the bullet now!

Just clean the bullet out!

I won't say it!

I forbid it!


I'll feel what's goin' around

I'll see what's really there

I mean "it's really fair"

As I shrink

I probable fold up

It's impossible

To see my money stack up

There's always so much to buy

When you're as broke as fuck

No time to see me dancing

Though, I'm a clown in his underwear

I will get my fair share

Then "touch down! Sea Hawks!"

Ev'rybody can play with my brain

When I open my head

When it's time to play

Shut up an be

The cause of me

__laughing with my pants down

Giggling softly

Ranting madly

__the sounds of funniness

As I say now

"How forgiving

__is the wind that knocks down

All thee apples?"

Don't tell the world

__they don't wanna hear it!

They don't know what forgiveness is

Or there would not be destruction

__upon my sorry life!

When I wake up

Dead in my sleep

__there'll be nowhere to go
