smile cocked an loaded

did my best

see where it got me

twenty year life sentence

spirit killing only one foot outside

ain’t no pleasing you

horrible head

that’s what I said

you probably think so

said with a grin

do good by my kin

so long as they don’t

stab me in the back

always by surprise

can’t see their eyes

under attack

keep your friends close

enemies close

family closer still


witchdoctor bleeding know it all

voodoo cast your spell

fly in the ointment

poison that I drank

particular kind of hell 

smile cocked an loaded

convalescence

ought to show it

point it straight at you

won’t know what to do 

good that I do

would’ve did it with you

but you had 

scurrilous agenda

ears burn

never learn

how can you miss 

what you don’t love

for that I have you to thank


still making mistakes

none quite as big as you

bitch from the past

you like manipulating

when all is said and done

like good legs

you ain’t got one (sic)

something’s not right

didn’t fail him as a father

failed me as a son

too much like the mother 

making trouble by the ton

do no ask for credit

had all there is from me

leeches are unwelcome here

no longer ride the bus for free


witchdoctor bleeding know it all

voodoo cast your spell

fly in the ointment

poison that I drank

particular kind of hell 

smile cocked an loaded

convalescence

ought to show it

point it straight at you

won’t know what to do 

good that I do

would’ve did it with you

but you had 

scurrilous agenda

ears burn

never learn

how can you miss 

what you don’t love

for that I have you to thank
