My Depression

(There is a sexual component to this relationship.

 It can only be attributed to human error)

Born in the southern land
where a man is a man
don't remember too much
warm mama, cold touch
post war baby boom
50 kids in one room
all white future bright but living in a womb
got a TV receiver
Jerry Mathers as The Beaver


No blacks, no queers
no sex, mouseketeers
daddy kept moving round
I can't settle down
always the brand new kid in town


Manlicher, lock and loaded
JFK, his head exploded
dark figure at the fence
end of my innocence
hormones hit me
chew up spit me
get stoned get plastered
always was a moody bastard


guitar fool, kicked out of high school
joined a band/Vietnam
mama-san/killed a man
daddy gets real sick
too intense I can't stick it
bought myself a ticket to the USA

Oh My God, it's my life
what am I doing kickin at the foundations
that's right, my life
better start looking at my destination

 

(Compress it, equalize it)

Hollywood sex rat
been there done that
jaded, afraid I'd never get a turn at bat
last in a long line, finally hit the big time
goldmine, feedin time
money, fame I get mine
use it abuse it
daddy dies I lose it
get a wife, get a son
beget another one
head said God's dead
motorcycle body shred
midlife crisis rears it's ugly head

Oh My God, it's my life
what am I doing kickin at the foundations
that's right, my life
better start lookin at my destination

 

My depression

Well, Prozac, Lithium
could never get enough of 'em
Last wills, shrink spills
sleeping pills, sex kills
edge of sanity, my infidelity
looking in the mirror
and thinking how it used to be


don't like the skin I'm in
caught in a tail spin
honest to God
vision spiritual transmission
climb aboard the life raft
looking back I have to laugh
take a breath
don't know if I'm ready for the second half

Oh My God, it's my life
what am I doing kickin at the foundations
that's right, my life
better start looking at my destination

My life, my depression
My sin, my confession
my curse, my obsession
my school, my lesson
