  • I know I look good.
    Stop sweatin' me.

    I'm makin' myself look pretty
    I'm makin' myself look pretty for you
    I'm makin' myself look prettier

    Let me rub my back against the notches on your bedpost
    To scratch these afterthoughts off my flesh and shed ghosts
    My head's close to your closet door.
    I've got the glass to my ear. My nose is in your
    business (I smell something fishy here.)
    I hear bones rattling. Poems battling for space and time
    Phones that'll ring when I make judgment calls with pick-up lines
    Sexual hang-ups leave me waiting nude and while alone
    It gets aggrivating masterbating to a dial tone.
    I'm the home to run-away trains of thought
    My one track mind is a collision intercourse where victim's cross,
    Bedroom eyes...uncross their legs exposing inner thighs
    I disrobe and show my most convincing disguise.
    I've lived so many lives each death has left my face scarred
    Hid so many lies under my breath that I can't face God
    Dig into my mind deep enough you'll find a graveyard
    I get nervous bodies will resurface every time it rains hard
    "Don't cry, girl." Let me outline your short comings
    My world is full of them and they're all in the long runnings
    It's all fun and games. It's all done in vain. It's all a fucking shame
    I ain't the one but I'm the one to complain?
    I'm the one to come home.Compare.Contrast.Come fast
    Make love to the present, fuck the past
    Make love to the present, fuck the past.Nothing lasts
    Don't you dare worry about the morning aftermath

    I'm makin' myself look pretty
    I'm makin' myself look pretty for you
    I'm makin' myself look prettier

    Taking an acid bath, pissing on the shower curtain
    The gal just laughs and starts dissing my towel turban
    I had to ask if she knew how to listen now I'm certain
    Now my task is just to get up in her like I was a surgeon!
    I'm a virgin who makes exceptions at sunset
    My dirty skin gets cleansed by the summer sweat
    "Self, have some respect! I don't need you new and clean
    But I don't want the procedure routine!"
    A screw machine!with a few bolts loose.robot response touch tone
    Hair trigger, happy-go-lucky emotion monger wants a love poem
    Run home.dip into your closet and jump bones
    Your secret admirer's stuck higher up and he's unknown.
    Looking down on you.can you bare the burden?my ears are hurting
    I found a few gears are turning
    With squeaky wheels.they get the grease cuz its a damn nuisance
    Understand the blueprints for our mechanical movements.
    It never ran smooth since we abused the Earth
    Grabbed a hand full of pubics and removed the turf
    Refused its worth, we lose our shirts.she assumed the worst
    And needed proof of birth? I'm leaving this universe.
    It seems doomed and cursed.see if you come first then come fast
    Come here.Come back.Compare.Contrast
    Complain.Constrain.Constantly ask,
    Complicated questions contain scientific answers in your flask
    Condone.Condemn.Come home.Come friend
    Confuse.Common issues.Condelude.Comprehend
    Carma.Chameleon.Come again?
    Continue to come in you.Come to daddy.Condescend
    Come and bring us (Confidence). Cunnilingus (Compliments)
    Come to thank us went from guilty conscienceness to common sense
    Calm down.Complete.Compound.Come eat
    Our Common ground meat from man-made concrete
    Come to the street.Conquer the weak.Come to terms with coming last
    Make love to the present, fuck the past
    Make love to the present, fuck the past.Nothing lasts
    Don't you dare worry about the morning aftermath.

    I'm makin' myself look pretty
    I'm makin' myself look pretty for you
    I'm makin' myself look prettier
