Denver Haircut

  • He shaved his head at the airport
    In a bar at the end of the concourse
    He said you're kind of catching me at a transitional time
    I'm a bright light burning into a dark horse

    She said I'll strap on the saddle
    And I'm sorry but this city's a cesspool
    I've kissed and I've cackled with half of these jackals
    Still couldn't get any jet fuel

    Walked her out to the taxis
    Took her out to some parties
    Found a man with a handful huddled over some car keys
    It doesn't have to be pure
    It doesn't have to be perfect
    Just sort of has to be worth it

    A Residence Inn at the top of the exit
    You pay the admission and here's what you get

    The stench of death in the credits
    The montage set to the time of your life
    A shot in the dark in a bar that's too bright
    A window sucking up all the available light, right?

    And a clock on the bed stand with a cord to connect it
    Liberty and Justice into Master of Puppets
    Rolling off of the mattress
    Waking up on the carpet
    It shouldn't have to be perfect

    He said he can't read the paper
    It's not worth the trouble
    Finds out about funerals from the blasts of the bugles
    Wherever he goes he always orders the usual
    He likes to see what they'll bring him

    In five hours on the carpet
    He visits six different planets
    On a spaceship shaped like a Gibson Marauder
    The pilot kinda looked like Kirk Hammett

    While he was floating in space that chick took his wallet
    Wasn't really a date
    Wasn't sure what to call it
    That same stupid feeling but he likes his new haircut

    It doesn't have to be pure
    It doesn't have to be perfect
    Just sort of has to be worth it Writer/s: Craig A Finn, Steve Selvidge
