CGIV: REMORSE

lyrics

I'm alive, I'm afraid
I'm adrift and ablaze
I'm weak and wet
I'm inert and inept
I'm part of the problem
and I'm never going to change

How do you spend your days and nights
wasting your money, wasting your time
treading round the same old ground
chipping away, chipping away
you are selfish and emotional
critical and insecure
intransigent, inflexible
amateur and immature

i feel so sorry and i dont know why
i cant just relax and enjoy myself
could it be the ravages of history
or an inheritance of the flesh

I'm ashamed

a sudden wave of raging shame
puts paid to yesterday's
victories and grand parades
trite ambitions and childish games
a sense of loss a loss of sense
i punch my head for loss of face
the weary world of drunk men's shoes
the private life of the master race
the sycophantic daily trawl
tapping into the great mundane
i don't know why, I don't know why
never again, never again

how do you spend your days and nights
wasting your money wasting your time
treading round the same old ground
chipping away, chipping away

you are fraudulent, repetitive
erroneously adamant
your persona is a parody
you are beyond an embarrasment

i feel so sorry.....

a heavy heart and a poisoned brain
bovine grease dripping down your chin
another good look that you've stumbled across
a gritty little drama what you're in

I'm ashamed
