FROM ORPHANAGES TO ASYLUMS AND THE MARINE CORPS WHAT A BLEAK JOURNEY FOR TROUBLED OZZIE RABBIT... WHAT MADE A FRAGILE, ANXIOUS FOSTER KID TURN INTO A COLD WAR, LETHAL ONE MAN ARMY? FIRST SHOT... KENNEDY SAME SHOT? CONNALLY 2ND... KILLED KENNEDY, THE SUPERPOWER BEHEADED... WHAT DULLES COULDN'T GET WHAT MOONEY COULDN'T GET WITH JUST TWO BULLETS AND A RIFLE ?? WHAT KHRUSHCHEV COULDN'T GET WHAT JOHNSON COULDN'T GET... WITH JUST THREE BULLETS AND A RIFLE ? FROM NEW ORLEANS TO MOSCOW AND A DALLAS LIBRARY, WHAT AN ODD JOURNEY FOR A LONELY, WANDERING, TROUBLED MAN... WAS HE A FALL GUY, TRAPPED IN A COVERT SCHEME? OR A CRUSADER AT WAR WITH AN EVIL EMPIRE? FIRST SHOT, FOR VIETNAM? OR FIRST SHOT, FOR NORMA JEAN? 2ND... KILLED KENNEDY, Mr. PRESIDENT'S DEAD...

I’M THE SAME OLD FELLA JUST WITH DIFFERENT HAIR CUZ TIME HASN’T BEEN THAT KIND SOME KIND OF LUCKY SOME KIND OF CURSED BUT I TOP IT WITH A SMILE FROM THE THIRTIETH FLOOR YOU CAN SEE A LITTLE BETTER WELL, JUST ENOUGH TO SPOT THAT HIDDEN PLACE CALLED "PEACE OF MIND", STILL HELLA HELLA FAR... DID YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS BY READIN’ BOOKS ? DID YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS FALLING DOWN ? NEVER LEARN THAT MUCH FROM ANY BOOK... JUST CARRYING ON... THEY ALL SAY I SHOULD GIVE UP THOSE DREAMS MOVE ON, GET A BETTER JOB THEY ALL SAY I SHOULD MOVE AND AND GET A LIFE OF ANOTHER KIND ANOTHER KIND... I HEAR THAT SAME OLD SOUND OF A DISSENTING VOICE DROWNED IN A SEA OF DEAFENING WRONGS... SOME KIND OF WORN OUT, SOME KIND OF BROKEN BUT NO LESS VIRTUOUS AND TRUE... FROM MY THIRTIETH FLOOR I CAN SEE THEY ARE APPROACHING FIT AND READY TO FIGHT NINETY NINE ?? A MILLION AND ONE ?? IT’S NOT A PROBLEM I’LL TAKE’ EM ALL ON ! DID YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS READIN’ BOOKS ? DID YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS FALLING DOWN ? JUST CARRYING ON DID YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS BY READING BOOKS ? DID YOU LEARN YOUR LESSONS FALLING DOWN ? NEVER LEARNED THAT MUCH FROM ANY BOOK NEVER LEARNED THAT MUCH FROM ANY BOOK JUST CARRYING ON

AIN’T IT FUNNY TO MEET AGAIN HERE WITH CHAMPAGNE GLASSES IN OUR HANDS AND OUR PECULIAR RIGID SMILES ? YOU DON’T SAY NOTHING BUT INSIDE YOU’RE SCREAMING YOU’RE READY TO SLASH MY FACE, CUT MY THROAT AND SEND ME TO HELL... THAT’S THE TASTE OF LOVE WHEN LOVE’S BEEN LED TO WASTE, LED TO WASTE ! SO CUT MY THROAT AND SEND ME TO HELL... THREE YEARS AIN’T IT FUCKING LONG, NO ?? WELL LET ME TELL YOU IT WAS FOR ME... WHEN SELF TORMENTING IS A HABIT... I DON’T SAY NOTHING BUT INSIDE I’M SCREAMING CAUSE YOU BROKE MY HEART AND RUINED OUR LOVE NOW PLEASE JUST SEND ME TO HELL... CUT MY HEAD OFF AND SEND ME BACK TO HELL THEN THROW IT AWAY, THROW IT AWAY, THROW IT AWAY... YOU RUINED OUR LOVE AND SENT ME BACK TO HELL LED TO WASTE, LED TO WASTE, LED TO WASTE...

NO VENGEFUL FEELINGS, NO BITTER THOUGHTS, JUST ONE SMALL QUESTION INSIDE MY HEAD, DID YOU REALLY GET YOUR KICKS BY PUTTING ME THROUGH HELL ? WAS IT ALL ABOUT HURTING? WAS IT ALL A WICKED HURTING GAME? A HEART OF MARBLE, A MIND OF STEEL CHESS MASTER GIRL, EVIL WHITE QUEEN SCHEMING WAYS AND NO REMORSE... CLUELESS PAWNS WAIT IN LINE TO BE BEHEADED SOME VENGEFUL FEELINGS, SOME BITTER THOUGHTS AND JUST ONE SHURE THING INSIDE MY HEAD: THAT YOU REALLY GOT YOUR KICKS MAKING ME HATE MYSELF... WAS IT ALL ABOUT HURTING? WAS IT ALL AN EVIL HURTING GAME? I KNOW I’M SAFE FROM YOU NOW I KNOW I’M SAFE FROM YOU NOW I KNOW I’M SAFE FROM YOU TIME HAS TURNED ON THE MIND GRINDER AGAIN AND RELEASED THE GHOSTS OF THE FUCKED UP PAST HUNTING SEASON IN A HAUNTED MIND PEACE HAS BECOME SUCH AN UNFAMILIAR STATE... A DYSPHORIC FEELING AND SOMBER THOUGHTS AND ONCE AGAIN, THAT SAME QUESTION INSIDE MY HEAD DO YOU STILL GET YOU KICKS PUTTING THEM THROUGH HELL ? WAS IT ALL ABOUT HURTING? WAS IT ALL AN EVIL HURTING GAME? I THINK I’M SAFE FROM YOU NOW I THINK I’M SAFE FROM YOU NOW I THINK I’M SAFE FROM YOU NOW... WAS IT ALL ABOUT HURTING? WAS IT ALL AN EVIL HURTING GAME? I THOUGHT I WAS SAFE FROM YOU NOW I THOUGHT I WAS SAFE FROM YOU NOW I THOUGHT I WAS SAFE FROM YOU...
