Out cold from long nights and long drives
I'm burnt out on sex appeal
Dare me to move on, or to lash out.
Give me ugly, or just something real
I used to toss and turn a fever.
Now I toss and turn my bed.
Searched out the old flings, that failed me.
I'll take what I am instead.
It all comes down to,
I'm still me, even without you.
You'll run away, endlessly.
Eat your words, ignore all the shame.
We could be, 'never were', 'never speak'.
It's a forever bender with me
I tried, and quit for a challenge.
I left Mom and Dad with a balance.
Here's to losing weight and losing meals
I coughed up while my voice gives out.
I've got pills, but I wake with doubts
That I can't sing what nobody needs to hear.
Oh, I'm petty-full
I pissed in your garden, now nothing's going to grow
Aren't we all poets? Yeah, I know.
I collect what I can remember, in a box because I'm getting old.
Nothing's going to grow
