AN INTERESTING LIFE

It's one thirty am,
I'm at the Scarab Bar again,
Drinking,
And conspiring with my new friends.
Legends,
One and all,
None of whom I will recall,
Tomorrow,
As I'm writhing 'round in pain.

But it's the cost,
It's the price,
Of an interesting life.
You take off into the air,
Just like a plane.
You climb higher,
And higher,
'Til your wings catch on fire.
Then you plummet,
Back to the planet,
Yet again...

Singin' "Oh Mary,
My love,
My beautiful friend."
Singin' "Oh Mary,
The fun never ends..."
Singin' "Oh Mary,
From up above,
From heaven descend!"
Singin' "Oh Mary,
Forgive me,
Again..."

Now, there's a man,
Over there.
He's got very expensive hair,
But only cheap and nasty things to say.
And some bloke,
That I just met,
Man, his name I already forget.
He bored me so bad I just balked,
And walked,
Away.

Singin' "Oh Mary,
My love,
My beautiful friend."
Singin' "Oh Mary,
The fun never ends..."
Singin' "Oh Mary,
From up above,
From heaven descend!"
Singin' "Oh Mary,
Forgive me,
Again..."

It's one thirty am,
I'm at the Scarab Bar again,
Watching all of my money wash down the drain.
And soon the sun she will rise,
And splash acid into my eyes,
And then,
I will truly,
Suffer the pain...
