If misery loves company
Suffering deserves a parade
Can you believe your life isn’t butter?
Mine’s fuckin’ marmalade
Got food, got water, got clothes, got ends
Got words, got time, bad jokes, good friends
Holdin’ our hats straight into the winds-
We’re sellin’ fame to the nameless and faith to the faceless
Cus blood is raceless like
New-Agers are baseless
Run my tongue through empty places
In teeth, pockets, ear-holes, & faces
Want true religion? Buy my book, forget thyself!
You’re sick, you’re battered, you need my help!
Trust no words & pursue true wealth
Keep reading more for a ladder into Hell
People won’t like you forever
And Deepak Chopra can’t make you better
Positive thoughts will change with the weather
Hang tough, remember: pain beget pleasure
Follow the threads, unravel the sweater
Religion aims to negate sense pleasure
While ad execs tryin’ to get to know you better
I’ll be knittin’ a shield if the weather gets wetter
A million ways to get paid and slain,
Punished by time, fines, and canes
Whipped in the gallows and tricked on the plains
Illusion makes slaves from both the sick and sane
Loss found himself cheated by Gain
Just as Abel was murdered by Cain
Praise was accosted and accused by Blame
While Infamy slandered Fame’s good name
Follow the muff, and swallow the bluff,
They say, “death is emptiness, life is hollow ‘n stuff
Fuck for a thrill, better live & shoot to kill
Life is a boot made for walkin’, footed by a physical bill!”
Advertisements wherever we go
Coulda traded bitcoin for a house in Oswego
I put all my savings on a Hail Mary free throw
While a little distracted from TV static free flows
How many likes to get to the center of an ego?
One, two, three, leggo my eggo & pass the chorizo
Blame chemtrails, chemfood, chemdrugs & tv shows
Cheap Neanderthal thrills for the man from Encino
Before we go, some questions burning up my loins:
How does a nation under God divorce its coin?
How come the news makes everyone paranoid?
Why does post-industry man seem to destroy?
How many dimes dropped before a banker’s fined?
How much vegan coke gets a burner high?
How much acid turns your problems wise?
How much medicine heals a sick twisted mind?
Tighten up the space and loosen the form
Our peasant hopes and dreams seem to feed worms
Persistently, our ideas spread like seeds on fallow farms
Resilient and firm, our love carries no harm.
