Addict

I smoke because I’m an addict, that’s not a reason.

Reasons are out of season.

If I gave up I could have a holiday or give money to the poor.

So I have been told, the addict must endure.

I don’t want a holiday and anyway I’m poor, so what?

I know smoking makes no sense, my doctor does, as for your advice, thanks a lot.

Since when has human behaviour made sense, when it does let me know.

I wish I did I wish I didn’t, this is the last line, let me go.

Wandering

My mind wanders, is it too late to save the Earth?

Its our only planet for what its worth.

Or to bring about world peace.

Starting with the Olympic games in Greece.

Wind back, rewind, what did I say, remind, remind.

So I am old, quite likely losing my mind.

I love scenery and poetry, don’t leave it behind.

Cocaine

Christ turned water into wine, not cocaine.

He caused no one pain.

A temporary thrill, a temporary high, sooner you die.

Who knows best, fools or the rest.

Mental illness, family breakdown.

Are these worth a night on the town?

Who pays, who has the money, is life cheap?

Are you smart or are you wise, will you weep?

Watch your love life fall apart, think before you start.

How may I prove to you that common sense is true?

Children are victims too.

Single Parent

I am a single parent of a problem child.

His name is Jesus Christ, should he be crucified?

He talks of love and truth and all that stuff.

All guff.

Have we had enough?

Christianity, he came back to say, has not failed, it has not been tried.

Ask someone who committed sucicide.

Who says he lied?

Modern Song

I want to commit suicide but I haven’t got the guts.

Don’t you know I’m nuts?

I want to share my misery and pain with you.

I think that’s the right thing to do.

You’re nuts too.

You enjoy my stuff because you are a misery boots.

I don’t give two hoots.

I am a comedian on stage, I give vent to rage.

A funny thing happened on the way to the loony bin.

Or alcoholic treatment place or drugs clinic, where do I begin?

I am depressed and I want the world to know.

Its my ego, its not small, I am a bomb about to blow.

Yeah, well, so people get killed at pop shows, so what?

I have the ticket money, thanks a lot.

I made sense once but I forgot.

Cheer up some other voice said.

It could be worse, you could be dead.

Who says everything is futile?

Some guy who forgot how to smile.

Life is awful, you’ll get over it in a while.

Is there no place for laughter, none for joy.

Not from this boy.

I say life is a one way suicide trip.

And people say I’m hip.

There is a word, masochist, look it up.

When you understand its meaning I might shut up.

And drink the loving cup.

In the meantime, okay, eat my turds.

You don’t understand words.

Because you don’t want to, it doesn’t suit you.

People like you shoot you.

Wallow like a pig.

Call me mister big.

Since when has it been best to be insane?

As that stupid saying has it, feel my pain.

Your pain is self inflicted.

You are addicted.

Grow up, get out more, life your life you fool.

Did you learn insanity at school?

Okay, I’ve had my say, I don’t eat vomit.

I prefer Wallace and Gromit.

I smoke and smoking is mad so I’m mad too.

Just like you.

I am the meaning of this song.

If I gave you a rope would you say so long?

Who has the cure, you or me?

Wait and see.

I do not choose misery and woe.

I go.

And so do you, what are you, Asian flu?

Solve the Arab Israeli conflict and I’ll believe you.

You are not the answer.

Chancer.

As for me, I am a dancer.

You are a romancer and romance is false.

I prefer rock‘n’roll to the waltz.

I too have faults.

If you see yourself in this song well, hello.

I don’t want to say I told you so.

Music should be fun or transcendental.

Not, as we say in Ireland, mental.

Is there a place for gentle?
