Treasure Island

Today


Today you pushed it
Today you pushed it
Today I stopped it
Today I stopped it
No more friendly words
No more friendly anything
Today you pushed
Today I pulled
The friendship tore
No tears over it
Nothing but peace
For you pricked
And I pushed
The bleeding corpse now is buried
I care not what you do
Just as you care none
Have fun hiding under that bed
Have fun hiding from the only friendship
Go hide little boy
For the woman has began to roar
