Soul for Sale

Hank says were born into this , im beginning to disagree
it seems its more of a born with it
a monkey ,the albatross or even call it that huge plus sign from atop calvary
the weight engraved lightens and leans deeper even as we shift out heels to move forward
making every step fucking worse than the last one
i must have been a roman or nazi in my former life
samurai swore they will be reborn as samurai in the next life for their deeds and torment
theres days i wonder…
am i that bad of a person to carry this or was i possibly a horrible homicidal feckless bastard in a past life destined to carry my own prick baggage for the rest of eternity hitting
everyone else with it like one of the three stooges?
feeling everything i see
not feeling everything i should
you people better duck when you see me heading into town
or just pay me i have plenty more where this came from


I can see your house from here

This back of mine is killing me,its not just from the labor though
when your young your given this cross around here
not for any birthday or left under the christmas tree,one day its just handed over like the keys to some old green ford that you would never choose to drive
a pocket full of mass cards
your heart goes on your sleeve
while the rest of it goes on your back until the load lifts itself from dragging it through these streets that have no end no matter the town or country
they say the good lord never gives you more than you carry
which i hold true
it would be grand
between the pitfalls
turmoil and wreckage
there were rest stops on this road i seem to be traveling along
the company i keep needs to dry their eyes
neither load is too heavy a job for me to take on
i will gladly carry
push or pull
just hold this for me while i clear her rain
lean it against Calvary for a minute
while i grab a few rounds
this is just a favor
i will come back
i will even put coins in the meter
i will pay for for it either way
just remember to move for alternate side of the street parking
