Mr Low Down

You never reached for any one. Soaked through nobody’s shoulder. You’ve been to hell and called it the truth. You said it’s time for getting gone, that nothing nobody told you Could keep you hanging on for proof.

Thank you for being my friend. Didn’t we have a nice time? Pacing by the train line, you said “let it go Mr Low Down, slow down.” Thank you for being my friend. Worth it in the late nights, Climbing up the drain pipe, taps on my window. “Mr Low Down, come down.” The killing storm was but a spell, my blind and beaten soldier. You were just inches from the shore.

You think you know yourself so well. No hippy shit we sold you Could keep you hanging round here no more. Thank you for being my friend. Didn’t we have a nice time? Bathing in the high tide, you said “let it flow Mr Low Down, slow down.” Thank you for being my friend. Worth it in the late nights, Climbing up the drain pipe, it’s you at my window. “Mr Low Down, come down.” So come down.

I just came in to make a coffee You and your drama, you can’t stop me Your blissed-out hippy mask is tumbling If you’re a mess don’t put it on me I’d rather watch the pot boil slow But go on then
