“I want a Body” Those fools...they don't know what they have A bed...a pillow...four walls A mother... a father...a body A body that doesn't hurt That isn't numb From needles and drugs From the biting cold From the dirty looks And the hate that glows From the daily checkups The daily lies... “You'll be fine” NO...I'm gonna die.... It's just not fair.... Why did God pick me? Why not the cat ... Or the dog...or the guy Across the street? Why not the mailman, pizza boy, Or Congressman in some heat? I shouldn't die...from the “Beat of the street” Just not right... Just not fair... I want a body...with hair... Muscles that work Lungs that breathe Lips that move Eyes that tear.... I want those little things... Whadya call em? The ones that Fight disease? Get rid of this syndrome...wont you please? I guess it's too late....the lights are spinning... I'm all alone...in this little room Lights that jiggle...and sounds that beep... Pop is dead...mom is gone My sister hates me...and that other bitch is gone... Damn...even my dog has left... I wonder...is God with me? Or am I totally alone? Hold my hand stranger...I need some love... Don't cry for me...my tears are spent... Just hold me...and let me go.... Tweet
