far be it from me to criticize, but i don't dig this sight white miles of winter taking hold, make it impossible to thread a hole or plant a pole or rake a coal or whack a mole or net a shoal or pet a foal or pay the toll i'm shredding Free Bird, dreading reverb shredded wheat turd, head on street curb let 'em eat dirt, i'm shredding Free Bird shouldn't it feel good? prized relic from the church we made somebody's shoulder blade before the master noticed it we poured a plaster mold of it adored it like the holy writ we fondle it, we bond with it, abscond with it if we puree our DNA we're cherokee, we're congolese we're chestnut trees, we're breathing bees we're amputees on trapeze, fleas in tweezers squeezed and wheezing pleas in legalese

"we'd like to see your swine blood pooling around our feet what a grave oversight you've made don't try to be the final word on the subject!" cried the beeves to the schitzo butcher something made me cut my hair last night shone upon me like a guiding light tried to beat it back with all of my might i had a seizure, woke up in a fright drew a border 'round the marquee moon drew a box around the tv too i see billy in the back, steel blue, got the neon dripping down my shoe i'm turning into tom verlaine i only made it 'cause my daddy's rich and my mamma looks like patti smith your opportunity to find a little niche is such a scam and everyone's a snitch something made me cut my hair last night shone upon me like a guiding light tried to beat it back with all of my might i had a seizure, woke up in a fright i'm turning into tom verlaine

don't take your cue from the woodrat if you don't like the view from the weeds he's a thief and a cheat and he's good at that woodrat a laboratory explosion blew my hard lot in the air i felt around for my walking stick to find it wasn't there so in the early evening i went weaving around in despair until a rat in an old oak tree sat me down and whispered in my ear, and i swear, he said... i am a ghost in your miracle toast i am a martyr in your hoover dam i'm at the top of your hill now, honey, come and take my holy hand "is this whole thing on wheels?" they asked with a prudent trace of fear "i got a screaming deal," i replied, pretending not to hear they boarded two by two, i was excited to finally steer i felt a claw on my shoulder, then saw his black eyes in my rear-view mirror. and i swear, he said i am the ghost... i got your fountain of youth now come and dig my little plan a flash of light and the whole thing broke like the old dead oak aforementioned i chipped a tooth but felt the truth regally shooting through my tangled hiding veins and now i believe you, i believe you... if i ever kick the pipe, i'm gonna pray most every night, i'm gonna lead myself to light because i am a ghost, blah, blah...

i humbly submit, not everything is shit (like you say) don't believe me, i'm a recluse, but i know tie-dyes (what's your size?) sure go good with your gloomy eyes-- will save our sorry hides tie-dyes--making 10 for a buck tonight with you that bridle that you bit, those bitter words you spit, you're such a slave to it losing my health in your black cloud sure feels fine meet me in my hospital bed, my little rain drop, tonight i'm talking to the breeze, just disregard me please no.. fuck that shit ... i'm a genius 'cause i know tie-dyes, sure go good with our gloomy eyes... that bridle that you bit, those bitter words you spit, i'm into it

the earth was formed and cooled and warmed a whale, a snail, a unicorn, a writhing mass of human trash sprang up from the bowels of some hell i commend you for trying lay your flag down by your side 'cause it's not what you think this time in a perfect world your pretty sister runs a spirited campaign to clear the family name i crack the sky and suck the juice and tap the sea that feeds my sluice and charge it all to tabs we haul around for the rest of our lives i commend you for trying take your hands down from your eyes 'cause it's not what you think this time in a perfect world our pretty little sister sally runs a spirited campaign to clear the family name

i nervously poison every moment with a dose of artless jest from the viper's nest i tell my friends i think i'm probably on the spectrum high-functioning but spaced-out missing a connection, dreadfully reflecting trashing every bond beyond repair a whirlpool of blunders, little wonder why the luckless join the game when they see me playing i tell my friends i think i might be on the spectrum high-functioning but spaced-out missing a connection, sick upon reflection trashing every bond but on the subject of luck, i couldn't give half a fuck for it it ain't the die that you cast, more like the time that you last, to wit: for 20 years i was bogged in some inscrutable fog that nipped my heel like a dog but luckier than a woman luckier than the bleeding poor luckier than the ship-wrecked luckier than the wrongfully-convicted luckier than a two-bit whore

i ain'tcha sousaphone won't even dignify it, the implication is out-of-line you blow it in my ear well, i'll make it disappear like the roses in the cemetery of your love i say it nice and clear... i ain'tcha sousaphone you ain't my helicopta mutha you mince around this field, a delirious nutcracka come to life say, do you know this tune? well you better learn it soon like a death march in the cemetery of your love welcome to the terrordome... i ain'tcha... i put my two weeks on the boss's desk today i guess you won this time around but he hears that ugly, strident sound coming from ya sousaphone won't even dignify it, the implication is out-of-line you blow it in my ear well, i'll make you disappear like the roses in the cemetery of your love play that death march in the cemetery of your love stolen roses in the cemetery of your love welcome to the terrordome

so i stole this guitar from some low-life downtown i've three times been broken by the thievin' dog i woke up in a freezing teardrop shaped fountain with my teeth on the ground reflecting in the water, bloody and brown you know you're three times dead broke when they find you in a pile of needles like an old christmas tree you're really dead broke when you wind up in a situation like me to the west was a temple, to the east was a roar never heard that before but i declined to overthink it as i hung a sail in its wild wind, and it cut through my coat like a mountain lion taking me by my throat you know you're three times dead broke when they find you in a pile of needles like an old christmas tree you're really dead broke when you wind up in a situation like me so i stole this guitar and some things for my home a herman miller aeron chair and a box of various decorative items as a mild compensation for the ways i've been boned it's impossible to catch it sleeping but you'd never know unless you've seen it it's a murderously inconvenient black hole
