"Tearing Me Down"


Break the slump

Maybe I just wanted that rump after all


But the titties!


I'm confused

I know what it is!

It's just what it only "was"

"A spark"

A spark that I chased after!

Thinking there was gonna be "fiya!"

But there wasn't

If there was it's been stomped out

By that cracka' red-neck honky

__that you fell for

And not me

Of course!

As usual

Amazing how you give somebody time

__to make a move

Knowing all along that they won't even

__want to

And then they get taken by a

__so-called "real man"


If that's what she likes

__she can go fuck herself

____thinking about him

Or just fuck him

I obviously won't be fuckin' any one

Wouldn't mind at least doing anything

With some one

But that's O.K. too

I guess

Put a bullet in my head

I won't mind

Being dead

Just give me at least 9 more months

To live

And write about things

__here and there

Being wrapped in pages

Of non-stop insanity

Is all that I can think about
