How do I beat this poisoned memory?
Escape on a ship and visit gay Paree
Another drink to numb what's inside of me
A diving accident in the deep blue sea,
Maybe a tour of Alcatraz penitentiary
Watching you live the single life so joyfully
Chamber another round at the local armory
Or simply ponder the impact of such indignity,
Like the novels, I've written characters so deep
Can't escape some losses not even in your sleep
No one to join me now in a midnight creep
My slippery landscape too dicey too steep,
Women don't stop to look from behind
Knowing that it might be a funeral of their mind
Why did I believe you when you said you're not that kind?
From the human race how can I resign?
I'll take a little jaunt in a Saturn V
Just anything that will make me feel alive
I'm at crush depth now in a deep-sea dive
Practicing my lines on how to connive,
Reading stories about controversial mysteries
Should have taken more seriously her history
Guess I should have become a missionary
Would I then have received God's mercy?
Wrap up your life in a paper bag
Reviewing it now watch your smile sag.
Nothing like being exhausted from jet lag
Sitting on my chest at night the deadly hag,
Valentines Day, oh what a joy
Pass out the candy for every girl and boy
From the good ship Lollypop shout out "Ahoy!"
Get ready for the women who'll use you like a toy.
