Comments about Alex River
Who In Hell Are You?
So who in hell are you
To decide anything in my life,
Tell me what I need to know
Or what I don’t need
Who in hell are you
When all the trust we had you’ve
Squandered like some slot-machine junkie spends
Quarters in Vegas,
Who in hell are you to tell me I should be your friend, when you’re
No friend of mine
But surround yourself with simpering and
Mirrors and those
little hotel-soaps and sachets
And Chanel the wrong flicking number
Who in hell are you to tell me what I can or cannot do, for a song I’d
Bleed you dry and turn you back into...
