The Cutting Room

Post by audiofool » Fri Oct 17, 2014 12:22 pm

Bad apple
what they're calling me
they say the fruit
doesn't fall far from the tree

deformed
I've reformed many times
dues paid in blues
crowned for my crimes

refrigerator mother
daddy MIA
razor blade for breakfast
a cold front on the way

chance and circumstance
danse macabre
opportunity to advance
I do enjoy the job

digging holes
with a smile and a spade
it never gets old
colors bleed and fade

bad attitude
an unhealthy addiction
to human misery
apathy my affliction

around the world
inside the mind
broke and battered
payment in kind

labeled and cataloged
filed and forgotten
statistically insignificant
from righteous to rotten

let me clue you in
I'm bound for eternity
you are not exempt
don't take it personally

it's only a job
with care and pride
at the end of the day
you're fit to be tied

corrupting youth
with mass appeal
vigor and venom
blissfully undead and unreal.
