not drowning

such a lousy lover

never amount to nothin’

the words went on

thought just a flavour here

would be enough

& I wasn’t listening anymore

had heard words like this

all my fucking life

give people an inch

& they will fill your head

inflame both ears

all you think of is yourself

only one who matters is you

couple of phrases more

in case you missed the gist

yeah you know why?

‘cos if I listened deep to you

those other naysayers in the night

throwing their own shit around

trying to make it stick

I’d’ve drowned years ago

sucked down by your fears

never have made my way

to knowing my own truth

what is yours what is mine

so welcome to the shit show baby

you can try to run the place

but you ain’t the boss
