lyrics

sharp shooter really shot my eye
from the other southern country she's from
but lively ivory thought to take some time
thought it's time to take me 'till i go numb

why not jive around with five at a time?

it wasn't hard to unwrap the gift
but i was sure to keep the bow on
from the pale bay that cannot drift
from the coast even though there's no swan

why not fuck around with nine in a night?

disemburden myself with thoughts & clothes
tilt my cover up & sun my nose
pull myself together from my impulse pose
fix my tie & tie apartments on my toes

we talked on the fouton cause there will be blood
as we didn't kiss i felt me grow old
from all the days of vagary & lust
what's the fun in doing what you're told

i won't walk around with flocks, but i might

& all the fervor that i gave to my brain
recently has had me draping atop
a phase that's further made my psyche stained
today i slept & hoped for phenomenons

i'll just jog amongst the fog in my mind
