Lazy Eye Susan
It's not like I didn't see it coming,
Crashing away in the distance,
But cold hearts make stiff companions
Out on the road at night.
I should have been home,
Asleep in my bed,
But what fun is living
If you're living like that?
She sold me a soul at the cost of my own,
And hers was blacker than cancer.
The daylight is fuzzy in her space between clouds
And she walks on her heart with a limp
I wanted to tell her how much I despised her
But "I love you" came right forth instead.
She attended my dreams with Novocaine fancy
While stealing my life-force in sunlight.
Fuzzy on details, she's always behind
Fucked to the hilt on her pills.
Lazy eye Susan, lolling and drooling
She waits on the sunrise in mourning.
So what have I learned from this nightmare existence,
What have I learned today?
Never trust someone less fucked than yourself,
And never stop taking your pills.
