taken from my book, "Chemical War Zone"

Middle Aged


'Cause there's no one with me

__in this whore house!

Just a bunch of hookers

__fucking some one else!

Well, I'm not alright, alone

No one to fuck and bone

So silly, is me

__for forgetting my time is gone

My prime is over

__I'll never have no one

Middle aged

It's all downhill from here

And, addict old me

__can't even drink a beer

But that's O.K.

I can dream of sex


____and L.S.D.

If that's what dreams are for

"Livin' the life you can't live"

Just what waking up

__is such a nightmare

I've lots of problems

__and I don't know just why

Why I shudder, in pain

__and freak out, screaming

But I won't be pulling out my hair

I'm getting hair removal

Then people won't be able to

__make fun of me

____for having a half assed shaved balled head

______every time It grows back

'Cause now it'll NEVER grow back!

They'll just find something else

__to make fun about me

But, hey

"Progress," not "perfection," right?
