Palpitations made him stop in his tracks
Until his heart began to beat normally
Listening, he could hear others fleeing to the north
So he continued fleeing eastward and hoped his pursuers would go in that direction
Except hope was extinguished when a slug ripped through his chest
Couldn’t care less what you think Miss Know It All!
Rarely does something come out of your mouth that’s worth a damn
And right now isn’t one of those moments
Being the refined person, such that I am, I won’t allow myself to stoop to your level
Because to do so would admit that you put me in a foul temper, but we both know that’s not the case
You just run along now and go to Hell, you hear?
Can’t hear the person next to you even though they are shouting into your ear
Loud doesn’t start to describe the thump of the speakers
Under that audio assault, your body has no choice but to move to the beat
Becoming yet another cog in the music box machine
Sometimes she didn’t know they were recording the conversation
Might have been a problem for a lot of people, but not for her
Others would hem and haw and stutter, but she was concise and clear
Others would say things they didn’t mean or didn’t want others to hear, she was honest and
That’s why she was happy the whole thing went to court
Here they would what she said in her own voice, and that voice said, “No.”
Booming vibrato oscillating his tonsils
As his car vibrated with each beat, threatening to loosen every fastener
So, he knew he should lower the volume, but
Since he just couldn’t stand to hear her voice anymore…
Digits scattered around in a ritualistic circle
It spun and clicked as it began its spell
And soon there were disembodied voices talking from the other side
Listen close and you might hear grandma
Reaching down deep for the beat
You feel it leap through your body
The pulses making muscles ripple and contract
How can you not dance to its command?
Maybe because your feet can’t hear the …
So you think you’re a real big deal?
Perhaps you’re right, but to me you are just meh
Love to hear that? Well get used to it
As you can’t seem to find the words to express yourself
So tell me princess, do you like feeling like you’re a fish out of water?
Here’s to trying to figure out how to stand on your own two feet
How do I get your attention,
Especially when you are trying to be so busy?
You hear me?
Don’t you want another hit, man?
Everything would feel so much better
Make all those whispers you hear go away
Or at least make them fade for a while
Now isn’t that worth it?
