As he watched the stripper show off her implants, he got a hard on but
he felt like crying, after the fall and the taste of the dirt, trying to pick
your self up is much harder than dying, he cheated on his wife so she
got all the money, and as they say he’s just left with what he deserves,
but he still dreams of his average ex wife’s body, as he pouts over the
Siren screams thru the city can’t tell where it’s coming from, but it’s
easy enough to tell where it’s head’en, the seventh seal just broke on a
bottle of Jack, and the motion just feels like Armageddon, he swallows
his drink and can’t find himself lost, the worlds full of reflections every
way you turn, but a strangers eyes hold the truest mirror, you just
never know; all you do is learn.
You know I really had it all; he says to his new friend, a beautiful wife a
good job and two great kids, I didn’t mean to take the meaning for
granted, but a wrong turn led me to a left turn; here I am on the skids,
they say shame is the deepest river but let me ask you this, what if the
wrong you did was simply a mistake, they call it shame I call it life are
you with me my friend, we all seem to go thru hell for heavens sake.
And up; skyward in the towers of Babylon, where they build the beast
of business on rumor and whim, the rules of street level don’t mean a
thing up here, he looks down; no animosity it simply just doesn’t mean
sh*** to him, he’s got his wife on hold and his girlfriend on the line, he
covers the receiver; hey Paul what’s going on down there, some f***ing
drunk got hit by a car coming out of that strip joint, great they’ve got
my car blocked in; babe I can’t go nowhere.
