  • No matter how many pens a poet drains
    How full of shit he is or ain't
    Well it ain't up to him to tell ya
    So if burnin' out sounds better
    And leaving hands and corpses makes good sense
    Well, then by all means crown the lizard

    Every single storied flameout's
    Purgatory playlist skirts the pay-outs
    Anyone from his loins might collect
    His is a legacy in tourist traps
    Conspiracies that took him out
    And tattoos someone else lives to regret

    All those well-intentioned lies that I myself romanticized
    Believably enough to pass as love songs
    With more than one man on one knee
    It never stops amazing me
    How easily the heart hears what it wants to

    Said the man who pissed the river
    If it's on and up you're after
    There's no mystery how the dam inside you burst
    I'd have a lot of nerve to go feigning shock and outrage
    If I'd lived my example, I'd be worse

    That part of you that feels alive is wired and can't be severed
    From the damage-seeking part of you that runs it
    Just don't embrace it with a vengeance before you've even shaved
    With a razor that you bought with your own money

    Said the man who pissed the river
    If it's on and up you're after
    There's no mystery how the dam inside you burst
    I'd have a lot of nerve to go feigning shock and outrage
    If I'd lived my example, I'd be worse

    Every single storied flameout's
    Purgatory playlist skirts the pay-outs
    Anyone from his loins might collect
    His is a legacy in tourist traps
    Conspiracies that took him out
    And tattoos someone else lives to regret Writer/s: Mike Cooley
