Don't even bother to try to ask me why
Will the human race live or die
When it comes to destruction
How we try how we try,
The widows will continue to cry
Just as the jilted who become shy
And upon the adulterers you can rely
How they try oh how they try,
Ask yourself how many of us live a lie?
Breaking all of our emotional ties
Amidst those disappointed sighs
That poor girl we pitied was actually sly,
There are those persistent facts we deny
There are those replacements for sorrow we can buy
Even a body to share under the night sky
When did we lose integrity when did we comply?
Was it because we lost our innocence, oh my
When you touched her inner thigh
All those times you had to lie
But Karma caught up with you by and by,
Is that all I am just a catcher in the rye?
A tooth for a tooth an eye for an eye
Just another evil ideology to defy
Could it be your conscience if I may pry?
Traces of emptiness you could identify
The residue of some Spanish Fly?
Was that Asian street urchin girl a Thai?
Please please old boy specify,
Into the hearts of lovers the arrows we shot
But it didn't feel so good when we got caught
The love she needed we kindly forgot
You've never quite erased her from your thoughts,
The elusive philly who was too hot to trot
The one you could never have bought
This wasn't the way you were really taught
Now its all gone everything you sought.
