I’ll remain
I’ll always wait
The patron saint
Of peeling paint
The grays
Behind the greats

The aftertaste will fade away
Alaska to the Everglades

And I
With my straightened spine (for now at least)
I’ll have myself a good time
And drown on solid ground
I might get around to figuring the point out

I couldn’t care less
I’m nothing yet
I’m just a picket sign inside the greater protest
But my rhetoric
Is the opposite
An open casting call for kismet
On a California death bed

“For what it’s worth
The worst is far from here
Your quote-unquote cursed
And so-called careening career

It is what it is
And if that’s average
Well ain’t that fabulous!”

Yeah, well, that’s easy for you
I’ve been living for two
But I’m stuck in the same fucking place
And I’m breaking in half every day

The aftertaste will fade away
Alaska to the Everglades
Those of us, the frauds and fakes
Float away, evaporate

Good for nothing’s good for now
First alone, then with the crowd
Until they believe it for themselves
Then blend back in and let ‘em shout
