can't have your cake and eat it too

i've got dreams that will never come true, at least i got something to hold on to.  the man on the screen is counting the score, bad news everyday arriving at the door.  living everyday in a world gone wrong, but i got my guitar and i got a song.  should i run away or should i stay home because i've been fighting the urge to get out and roam.  everybody claiming that they know the right way but even a dog is gonna have his own day.  got a little problem- you just take the right pill, been counting down the seconds till you get your next thrill.  i know i can't change what's in the past but i'm going to tell you although you didn't ask.  we gotta love each other or we're all gonna die-so there i've said it, i refuse to cry.


  1. Pete will be glad to hear you don't hate him anymore.

    (I live in Cincinnati, people here will never forget the guy and they generally stand up for him no matter what.)

  2. "we must burn the beast of our own creation" - a postmodern response to Yeats, no? these things just happen for a skilled poet. kudos.
