Tho now you mourn the loss of me You've treated me expendably I'm leaving my position It hasn't been a bad situation But the annoyance looms large in my imagination The civilizing factor slowly loses traction How can you disappoint someone Who doesn't believe in you? By reminding them they don't believe in you By proving their doubts untrue What's still important is dalliance and variance They've already sat on all the ants in their pants My fuddy-duddy business sense My detail-focused pleasantness I've been kind but now I smile in victory They are currently now at my mercy We've come to terms with where we disagree That's really a very pleasant place to be My lame-ass conservation mind My careful, anxious axe to grind What we banked on is my sense of responsibility My pleasure in all interior authority They definitely felt I was a real catch However I never hypothetically committed to the task They're impressed with my autonomy They see clean counters, fawn on me They only have skeptical faith in me But only 'cos I'm such the fucking best nanny They trusted me to be less artsy Idle, peripheral, dirty dirty little life eddy How can you disappoint someone Who doesn't believe in you? I'm leaving my position It hasn't been a bad situation

If you'd a-got here before me I'd leave with you whenever you'd want to leave If you'd a make it in 40 I'd hang around, I'd buzz you in when you'd ring If you'd a-come in troubled I'd have taken your shit If you'd a-come in & bubbled I'd have read your lips If you'd a-come in happy I'd a-known it might've been somebody else that you'd seen If you'd a-come in laughing I'd have known the joke might be on me If you'd a-come in with her I would have been impressed If you two had snuck out the back door I never would have guessed If you'd a-come in at all What chance had I to say anything good or kind If you'd a-come in to find me at the wall Would you even pay me any mind If you'd a-come in no never at all I'd blame myself for waiting If all the stars went out at once I'd blame my own sight for fading Now you've just walked in Now I'll just end this song Now we're kissing No I haven't been waiting very long

Dear Lord & Father of mankind, forgive our feverish ways Reclothe us in our rightful mind In purer lives, thy service find In deeper reverence, praise Drop thy still dews of quietness 'til all our strivings cease Take from our souls the strain & stress And let our ordered lives confess The beauty of thy peace Breathe thro' the heats of our desire thy coolness and thy balm Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire Speak thro' the earthquake, wind, & fire O, still, small voice of calm
