• Sadness



    i had a flashback 
    to old bathrooms and even older men
    sadder times
    satan's ladder times
       when that downward climb
    was easiest for them
    i need to go back to 1970
    to warn a boy

    i had a flashback  
    to urinal cakes and cigarettes
    bad bad climes
    simply madder times
       when the tick tock
    was like brick locked
    in my ears
    i need to go back to 1970
    to warn a boy

    i had a flashback  
    to hands all over me
    fingers that burned in third degree
       and words that turned my stomach

    i had a flashback  
    to a younger and smaller me
    now the taller me
    needs to go back to 1970
    to warn me
