Wild Berry Gas Tank Explosion


Drenched in rain

Set to blame

The pain staking cost

Pushed too far off

Out there in the rain

__I was

But I gave up

I'd rather chase true love

I know it's a dream

But what else can life mean?

The time that it takes

For Heaven to erupt

And take ev'ry one

Is all that I need

To just be me

And fall like a leaf

No one knows me like a tub of butter

And nothing else is gonna matter

__over here

Where all weird things begin

To crawl on my skin

And empty my brain

So lost

So this way

Can I ever loosen this load that I carry?

What's for lunch

__if not berries?

No, it's not scary

__to look you in thee eye

I'm just not used to doin' it

So park your car in the lot

__of your choice

Let the wheels feel the patterns

__of the ground of their own choice

And meltdowns can become possible

When the water drenched

And thee apocalypse is coming

After you

And after me

And when thee aftermath is over

And you turn a cold shoulder

Don't worry about the beg bugs

They know how to drive in the rain

__the way told to

But if you look at me that way

I might just get hungry

__and eat your brains

Don't stop when the heavy longitude

__and latitudes quiver in delight

Because my mind is mine for thee hour

And yours as well

And when the meat locker freezes over

You'll be sneaky

__and come to rescue me

Won't you?

So I could be free

Free to be in love

Just you and me

And we could hit the hay

__like everyday

Whatta ya say?
