Cut in Half

from by The Crenshaw



I'd commit a genocide on this freeway
But wouldn't harm a fly
I'd tell you that I'm honest
But that would be a lie
I try to be good, I can't help it
A TV trained killer or a gorilla in disguise

More than a monkey because I know deceit
Better than some not as completely
As most of you people
You fucking people, don't you people have jobs?
Or someplace better to be?
Than killing yourselves slowly
With the drone blaring loud in your stained-steel coffins?
I think these thoughts too often.

Cut me in half, you'll get a clown and a giraffe
And I can't tell who's playing who
And if you want a laugh,
Well then have I got a joke for you
