The Confusion Of Knowing You


So sad, that you would assume that I love you

You're so desperate for a stepfather for your child

__that you'd marry any one foolish enough to ask

But that's O.K.

I knew we weren't going anywhere

__when you wore that Christian T-shirt

I just wish I would not have forgotten

And never asked you out on a date

That ended up being a friend date anyway

But that's also my fault

'Cause a "friend" is all I can be to a woman

Any woman

Even a hooker, I suppose

That's why I'm not fucking those now either

But that's O.K.

At least I'm not dying a virgin

Just that being teased with sex

Only to have it be taken away, sucks

But God doesn't give a fuck

He don't even want me fucking, at all

__in the first place

That's why it took so long

__for me to start fucking

Well, I'm obviously not fucking in my future

Nobody wants you when you're middle aged

And can't get it up without a blow job

I can't find a girl that'll suck my dick

Nobody wants this

And I don't blame them

I just can't afford to pay them

If that's my fault

__so sue me

I ain't got any money

And I'm already doing time

I sentenced myself

__for trying to kill my own mother

That was nobody's fault but my own

That's why I'm being left alone

So go ahead

__and run along now

____and ghost me

I gave you permission to, didn't I?
