Blowing Bong Hits at the Moon
For all I know This could be the last show. But I'm too young to hang up the clown suit just yet. Re-running happily frightening images of wher I come from. Where I've been.
Well, I took a shower for an hour and that was just the other day. I gotta look my swellest for the ball or premiere or what ever they're calling it these days.
Marriage. Yes, The subject has come up, The old girls even dropped subtle hints. Christ.
Is it really gone?
Fruit cakes in alleyways. Starving actors for pay. Mixed in the shuffle of the city. That is to say the billboardians. You walk down L.A. streets You feel the sweat on your hands and the cold on your neck.
Oh, he's so clever
I told the ol' boy I had no money Nothing, Nada,
In My Lawn Chair
I'm so hungry I can't eat. I'm so in love her abuse reminds me she's there. Now on sunset and Doheny where many a merlotnight was spent. I AM a hopeless romantic
Can't even name her.
Just give me a hand Just help me out And the moon is just a Big toenail right now
Your Place In the Pages
When I'm searching for a midnight surprise I stop and wonder how you could ever be mine again. When I'm burning all the memories of you And I do so by taking giant lingering breathes
I still recal the sound of the 2 A.M. trains from your open bedroom window. Nestled between a hidden life and your bedspread choking on your flame colored hair.
I looked in the mirror this morning and an honest man shooting daggers back at me. i coughed in defense at the weak image i saw, after i inhaled some smarts. I ate the forbidden fruit when you told me not to.
Pipe Wrench Fantasy
You know I never thought I'd be there. at the bottom of it. Scraping the thick sticky floor for something I can take home. I found a rare flower floating gracefully on top. I picked it.
the last jerk off
i'm still here. the birds still sing mr. Erickson still sings my heart does what it does.
Who will you screw?
I've been to 27 different bus stations I got a big old hickey on my left thigh. I ran you outta here while the gettin was good Tell me who will you screw?
I am Satan
You blame me for your mistakes. You curse my name when things go wrong. You tear me down simply for my thoughts. Upon exhile you leave me no choice but to seek retribution.

Blowing Bong Hits at the Moon
For all I know This could be the last show.
But I'm too young to hang up the clown suit just yet.
Re-running happily frightening images of wher I come from.
Where I've been.
Never imagining in a thousand hits
I would've ended up here.
Never fathoming it would be like this.
Carefull jottings of history...I suppose.
Both true and halucinated
while Coltrane and the gang tell me about their favorite things.
It all gets fuzzy these days when I try to think.
Before today speaking and not being heard
Being silent then being ridiculed and blamed.
All because I ...
