He Had Love in His Eyes And Lust In His Heart

November 30, 2008
By Taylor Smith, Gibsonia, PA

Perambulations proved plausible, the pauper never wins
The poor mans eyes made possible the pilot just begins
Suddenly erratically the light shined in his eyes
Can see it clearly now, the blind man never lies
(Lies,Lies,Lies,Lies, Lies, Lies)

Mendacity that crawls beneath his seething skin
The Cock-and-Bull she just can’t take it,
The affair does now begin
He was innocent the court proved it right,
Shed done anything to leave him that night
But I didn’t do your meters,
I done nothing quite like that
A riled man grabbed him,
Made poke like alley cat

The backstreet lovers never stood a chance
The blind mans eyes saw through the lies
He made a look like that,
In all his days never saw summat just like’ at
Pilfering waste he thought back
Nothing ever goes down,
Down, down just like that
