kicked in the heart

August 10, 2019


We’re good together
It’s ready to start
Will I jump over the moon
Or get kicked in the heart?

I hear a song playing
For me and for you
Is it Over the Rainbow?
Or Little Boy Blue?

I’m a little bit timid
If you’ll pardon my scars
Does this stairway go down
Or straight to the stars

I’ve been here before
And it didn’t end well
Will you be my salvation
Or my ticket to hell?

Masochism is my best friend

July 29, 2019

masochism is lots of fun
my psyche is a loaded gun
I maximize my agony
by blaming everything on me

masochism is really cool
a crackerjack survival tool
I got booze and chemistry
to lubricate my misery

masochism is my best friend
we’ll be together till the end
it puts my nerves on overdrive
and makes me feel so alive

Blameless

July 10, 2019

Yeah, I did your girlfriend
But it wasn’t my fault
If you weren’t home early
We wouldn’t have gotten caught

Yeah, I crashed your car
But why you blaming me?
You locked your front door
But you didn’t hide your keys

I said, “I’ll always love you
You’re the only one I see”
I was loyal for a week
Which is pretty good for me

Everywhere I go
All the people I meet
They make do bad things
I steal, lie and cheat

It’s a crazy crooked world
And everyone is rotten
Doesn’t matter what you do
It will soon be forgotten

complicated

July 4, 2019

feelings are
so complicated
you got me
all agitated

my body is
so complicated
good to go
and activated

people are
so complicated
ain’t no two
the same created

reality
is complicated
everything just
detonated

love and life
are complicated
i wish my heart
was nickel-plated

Never Said I Was Sane

June 29, 2019

You gave me your love
And I threw it down a drain
You should have paid attention
Never said I was sane

Tried to clear out my head
With a pound of cocaine
And a gallon of whiskey
Never said I was sane

I held up an army
Left a pretty big stain
They locked me up for good
Never said I was sane

They gave me some tests
To study my brain
I’m a wee bit psychotic
Never said I was sane

They got me breaking rocks
On a ball and chain
I’m just glad to stay busy
Never said I was sane

a thousand ways I could have been better

June 15, 2019

There’s a thousand times
I could have been better

I got angry
I said the wrong word

There’s a thousand ways
I could have been better

Didn’t ever show up
For your world

There’s a thousand things
I could have done better

I should’ve been
The guy you deserve

There’s a thousand ways
I could have been better

Now I know how low
It all can go

I ain’t crying anymore

April 21, 2019

All my girlfriends say
I should forget you double-quick
You’re a cruel lying monster
And an evil little prick

You cracked me open
Like an egg
You poured my guts out
On the floor
You can grovel–you can beg
But I don’t
Love you anymore

I let you use my car
You stupid stinky little cheat
It smelled like cheap perfume
You left her panties on my seat

You cracked me open
Like an egg
You poured my guts out
On the floor
I just need
To stop the bleeding
Cuz you cut me to the core

Kicked my dog and slapped my Pa
You tried to f—k my friends
I gave the cops a statement
Now this nighmare’s gonna end

You cracked me open
Like an egg
You poured my guts out
On the floor
My tear ducts
All run dry
But I ain’t crying anymore

you almost killed me with your smile

March 19, 2019

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You got a stone for a heart
What’s the matter with you?

You almost killed me
With your smile
So I’ll be bleeding
For a while

You were the happiest thing
In my sad little life
Then you took out my heart
With a rusty old knife

I ain’t got nothing left
But tears
I’m gonna bleed
For forty years

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You laughed in my face
When I asked if you were true

left for dead

March 9, 2019

my heart went thru the ringer
my heart bruised and bled
my heart was abandoned
my heart was left for dead

Then you woke my heart up
With your laughter and your way
You showed my heart the sunshine
On a cold and rainy day

Love is like a river
The comfort that you bring
Love is like a river
Thawing in the spring

don’t hump me and dump me and break my little heart

December 29, 2018

don’t hump me
and dump me
turn my insides into mush
don’t kiss me
and dismiss me
find somebody else to crush

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

don’t hump me
and dump me
and cut me down to size
don’t tease me
and squeeze me
like a consolation prize

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

don’t hump me
and dump me
and break my little heart
don’t hurt me
and desert me
and tear my life apart

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go
