We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.


Every time I close my eyes, I think of you

I got a brain the size of Rhode Island
‘Cause I can’t think when someone's smiling
She's got a smile like Saddam Hussein
Always hiding something in a guarded frame

I do my level best to keep a level mind
I do my best to keep these thoughts inside

Have I been talking to a vacant stare?
Have I been singing to a dirty mirror?
Do we even know if we don’t care

Buyer beware

I’ve got a problem and I'm in distress
It's so bad I'm just a marionette
She’s got a laugh like Kim Jong Un
Just a little cracked, yeah, a little out of tune

Every time I close my eyes, I think of you
