crossed my fingers when I sent you them roses

true what they say 

turn your misguided world upside down

never before and never again

tramp you in the dirt

repeating it all over town

too far is not far enough

for an agreeable distance

that sneer will be wiped eventually

a thousand literal headaches

that you done given to me

knew you was lying 

when you said you were something

lying being your speciality


waylaid in obscurity

the left behind

abused

the never to be free

no sympathetic lullaby 

for the forgotten actors

of vhs porn

an playboy tv

crossed my fingers when I sent them roses

we can all pretend don’t you see

never met one who saw meanness as a virtue

an disgrace you so festively


always all the other people

blame the man in the street

could only hold my head above water

pulled the rug from under my feet

out to lunch any positive outcome

where we sit down and talk

didn’t record or sign any papers

an love it was written in chalk

everything a fear hungry parasite needs

to turn any smile upside down

laughing at my desperation

find some other clown


waylaid in obscurity

the left behind

abused

the never to be free

no sympathetic lullaby 

for the forgotten actors

of vhs porn

an playboy tv

crossed my fingers when I sent them roses

we can all pretend don’t you see

never met one who saw meanness as a virtue

an disgrace you so festively
