As if Jim Morrison
had taken some downers
And lived to be 49 or 65
Ditched the band in 1989
Head out with a notepad
On the Road
with nothing but a leaky pen
and a can of Van de Camps beans
The orange juice and smushed beans
the only things left
by the time he'd 
busted the lid with a rock

Tick Tock
the piss ran down his leg
So we tie up our girlfriends
to the three post bed
Put the gun 
Up to our temple
And squirt the water
Think a thin stream
Running fearful low
And the weather man
questions his career choice
Smiling full sail
As the nose of the ship
goes asunder
like a loon
not to come up again
to sail the warming sea
