as far as i know, i don't know very far.

i'm a master of mistakes well made
but don't blame me for
being less than i was cracked up to be

these sentences are too late
they won't ever be salvaged
stanzas filled with a passion
small town big boys never understand

isolation is my option
the other lives on a flat screen
the world only turns in one direction
but southwest is where i revolve

this derailed soul is on it's way
so crank up the vicious laughter,
somewhere else i'd rather be
"just off the cliffs of eternity"
where black star boys sing the blues
and sleep on better fortune
