Defeat
devilsbelboy

Do you hear that moan, crawling out naked in the dark?
 1
Bloodmind thinking thick to shake you down, clog your heart
 2
The Fat Lady softly cooing, "It's over Jonny it's over."
 3
Her voice deflects the ones who are there to stone her
 4
 
 
It's over
 5
It's so over now
 6
Why can't you come to accept your defeat?
 7
Her slap did not wake you
 8
You only have yourself to blame for your blues
 9
 
 
Do you see her tears, that you got ever flowing?
 10
Blind to her beauty as the truth sat there snoring
 11
The birds are there cooing, "It's over brother it's over."
 12
Your arms just were not made in this life to hold her
 13
 
 
It's over
 14
An' you have the how
 15
How come you can't find your soul in the street?
 16
The slap just won't wake you
 17
As you just sit there an' cling to the snooze
 18
 
 
Some day you will get over all of the moaning
 19
Some day you will escape the feeling of owning
 20
All your love to her, the tears on her shoulders
 21
Get over it, the future will break down the boulders
 22
 
 
It's over
 23
Healing starts now
 24
Some other lost lover for you here to meet
 25
The slap will awaken you
 26
For something different that you could choose
