You're Staring Again

You’re Staring Again

It’s a mystery, you,
alone wishing to be free
you’re staring again into the deep dark mirror
with no reflection glistening
sonofabitch, and like a hangnail
you’re tearing at it again, throwing in the towel
and bleeding from a vein
that can never stop bleeding,
never stop gushing, never stop flushing

You’re freedom will never come to pass
as long as you live in your mind
take a walk, take a jog, run a mile or two,
throw up your bagel along the way
people don’t care if you don’t care,
if you don’t dare, your plagued, I swear
what’s the point if you won’t make it,
you’re jonesin’ for the road but why?

Stepping into the unknown blows your mind
with your heart closely following
is it really a passion to seek the unknown
when you won’t seek the essence of soul?
you’re all, “give me my personal space”
and “you’re crowdin’ the shit out of me”
hit the road and I’ll see ya when I see ya,
don’t let the door hit ya where
the good lord split ya

I’m crude and rude and I don’t care,
you piss me off when you won’t go anywhere
free, be free, be free and take a chance,
let slip a tasty ass,
nasty glance and thrill a young boy
let scandal rule, let the scoundrel prevail,
be wicked and worldly-wise letting all faces fly
be real and true, be free and refined,
dig deep into the earth and plant a seed

“Calling all cars, calling all cars,
be on the lookout for a hot, nasty bitch!”
just once would be nice, getting crazy,
wobbly and bare, you, the tease, the irrepressible
all it would take would be a single step,
one single step outside of the norm
your soft tender touch at the base of the stone
and eyes rolled back in impassioned delight

Will you leave? Will you strive?
Would all circumstance be at a loss
with your sudden departure?
I dare you, double dog dare you to spit in my face
and find your true voice amidst the socialite throng
give it to me and give it to me good,
let all hidden caution be thrown to the wind
I think you can stand it, I think you’ll be fine,
you’re fine when you’re fine, oh so sublime
