well I ought to grow my hair out long
while I'm distracted
from these doggone days
thought it might pass with age
but here I'm stranded
they're just words upon some goddamn page
but they make me frantic
so I hold my breath for just a moment more
and I'm exalted
I don't think you knew what you were getting into
when you met me
and you stood there still where the shadows spilled
and you let me
while by and by, the public eye
did forget me
they might rip and tear, they might gawk and stare
but don't feel like you have to be nice to me
all my clothes are torn, all full of holes
no one to fix them
but I like to leave them all that way
to beat the system
all that wasted thread, all that naked flesh
and all that distance
well you have your past, and you have your poisons
now it's time that you learned how to listen
...well I always seem to pick the ones
who never pick up the telephone.
