The Girl

May 9, 2010
I know this girl
As pretty as can be
The sign of a Scorpio
She was born on the 3rd
UFO's and unknowns
Give her the creeps
And she's got a half life, a half smile
And lives in semi-poverty
Questions Gods, drugs, and bullets
And the High School Beauty Queen
And she's courageous but scared to death
But that's what courage means.

She's looking for some courage
She feels faithless, she feels earthless
She wants to run
She's strugglin' for purpose
I tell her to hang in you know it's worth it
You've just begun
You've just begun

Her bedroom is her temple
The books and stereo, her muse
She feels humbled by this equation
And sets fire to all her shoes
Not because of Henry Miller
She's just not leaving any time soon
And as the smoke pours out their window

An image forms behind the moon
And it looks like the face of Jeasus
But if it is Jeasus she needs proof
At the heart of the matter,
and a matter of fact
The science of matter
She hopes that it's true
