A Knight's Tale

(more like a modern blues song than anything)

My love for you is extinct
like the dinosaurs
Nothing will revive it
So, you stay on Venus and I'll stay on Mars.

So tired of being your listening ear
Shoulder to cry on
Your love put me in arrears
So quit all your spyin'

on me when I'm with my friends
4AM bitchfests on my cell phone
Our romantic comedy already said "The End."
You ate all my popcorn, the credits rolled.

Church bells ain't ringin' for our wedding
I'm not your knight in shining armor
I smashed all your fancy place settings
Seeds of love won't be sown by this farmer.

I won't be there to plow your barren fields,
Can't reassure your unending doubt
Find another ticket for your 8 course meals
Don't let the cardoor hit you on the way out.

Lights Out

Lights out for the city on the lake
There's only so much more we can take.

Lack of leadership and crippling corruption
Abandoned storefronts, no decent jobs
Half-assed orange barrel construction
Where are the angry mobs?

One daily paper with a kindergarten readership
glossing over unpleasant realities
and Tabloid News has strip-
mined our brains for carnality.

We're made to fear and blame the poor
as the Corrupt in power steal our last dime
But the money's running dry, lights out, no more
the bamboozled victims may yet draw a line

Tired of being Morlocks toiling
in our broken machines
The cogs won't be silenced by oiling,
We've got to make to make a scene.
