somewhere the truth will land

should’ve never put my faith in you

room up top for stragglers no more

rotten is rotten luck way down to the core

truth is hard to swallow all been down this road

can’t be chained to the mast of the past

carry your own heavy load

is and was belligerent

forever moaning been underpaid

this here road asshole of the city

my usual accolade

mean less to me now

deviation if ever there was

you can’t want what will hurt you

surely no-one does

think of you think of poison

not the venom not the perfume not the band

maybe when the penny drops

somewhere the truth will land

bird is it a plane no another rage again

letter couldn’t post

forgot myself tried to recall

what really matters most

considered you with empathy

now with sheer contempt

thought you were my hero

to my detriment

piss taker at my door

had to think about my daughter

security guard in y-fronts

doing what he oughta

knew the consequences

you can’t come in

cut off my nose to spite my face

one to take on the chin

think of you think of poison

not the venom not the perfume not the band

maybe when the penny drops

somewhere the truth will land
