It's a Wheel

        Well i suppose nothing is meant to last forever. We have to make room for other people. It's a wheel. You get on. You go to the end.

Less Than Love

         We merged our loneliness once again, in something less than love but sweeter than self. I didn't get home to West Los Angeles after all.

Just Dropped By

Memories fall just like the rain, and i remember when
Well don't let me bore you anymore
Cause i'm not quite as lonely as i was before
I didn't want a thing, you know, i just dropped by to say hello

Don't Come Home

           We spend our lives turning over dirty underwear and sniffing rotten teeth. We go up dark stairways to get a gun punk with a skinful of hop and sometimes we do't get all the way up, and our wives wait dinner that night and all the other nights. We don't come home anymore and nights we do come home, we come home so godamm tired we can't eat or sleep or even read the lies the papers print about us. So we lie awake in the dark in a cheap house on a cheap street and listen to the drunks down the block having fun. And just about the time we drop off the phone rings and we get up and we start all over again.
