Confessions of a Breakopen Addict

lyrics

you dreamt in youth
of consummation and completion
but then the dawn crept in
and your carriages: spent ovaries, stinking

just rotting gourds in the morning fog

yeah, your prince came and went to fat
and now the only moral path
is a lifetime of boredom
grinding up time for creature comfort.

and you're holding up the line.
can't you see you're holding up the line?

now, your dreams have become flat
and if you walked to their edge
you just might fall off
drop down and go "splat"

and you don't believe in love
no not anymore

now laughter is a foreign language
spoken only in cynicism
and you can't get no respect
not even from your own DNA.

and you're holding up the line.
can't you see you're holding up the line?

life gives you three lemons
so you make lemonade
life gives you three oranges
so you settle for some marmalade
life gives you three cherries
but that's hardly chump change
but life gives you three gold bars
and mama gets PAID!!!
