be funny if we were saying

  • can't believe that we got sold

be a laugh with all our words all straying

  • refusing to be trolled
  • refusing to be told
  • refusing the lure of gold
  • refusing to be controlled

be funny if we were praying

  • trying to keep a real good hold

pretty convenient way of playing (yeah)

  • just doing as we’s told

got a whole new super duper way of saying

  • that the bum got rolled

feeling a little bit frisky

  • and a little bit bold

just another way of relaying

  • that ya never got told

just another way of saying

  • that the comfort is cold

and at the end of the day

  • it’s not; it’s just old

this my way of saying

that’s your type of praying

you’re not really playing

it's not a game

you’re just paying

aint that a shame

you’re just greying

but that's not quite the same

you’re just saying

looking for somewhere to lay the blame

i’m probably staying

aint that a shame

just saying

i’m kinda glad

    Truly enjoyed this one! I literally missed a green light because of it! It came and went while I was standing at a crossroad reading this piece.
