Weekly Song #35 - Billy's Courage

from by Roger Heathers

lyrics

We move away
We smell the bacon cooking
God knows I can change
Became allergic to the Kool-Aid
You can stick that God damn paper up your ass
I never signed it anyway
I'd love for you to see me act my age

Hold me to my word
I'm an affirmation fueled testosterone machine
Wide eyes in a wide world
I can wait
Oh, I can wait
But I don't know how much longer I can wait for

We walk away
We leave them talking
Leave the broom against the door
I'm making money, having sex and starting arguments
"Who does he think he is?"
"You know I never liked him anyway"
"I guess he doesn't live here anymore"

Hold me to my word
I'm a newly liberated slice of cherry pie
Wide eyes in a wide world
Oh, I can change
I can change
But I don't know how much longer I can change for

Special forces intervene, special forces
I still don't know what you mean
But of course it's a long long way
From the genes I have

Suicide and alcohol
Depression and resentment
I'm lucky to've made it out so clean
I'm lucky to've make it out as me
