The Down Low

"I'm trouble" she said

Spread out on the floor of her father's house

Her promise was almost undone

Under her tongue, dissolving her responsibilities

To finally deny everyone with unflattering comparison

All grown up

And you don't care anymore

And you hate all the people that you used to adore

And you despise all the rumors and lies of the life you led


Did I hear you right?

You're feeling hounded and pushed around

You want to just lay down and die

If all of this life has been such a big disappointment to you

Why don't you stop blaming some guy

And go give the next one a try

But look at yourself

You'll see you're still so young

You haven't earned the weariness

That sounds so jaded on your tongue

"I'm weak" she says

And blesses herself and gets into bed

Clutching the covers to her throat

"So punish me now and let me go back to the sham of my life"

"This night is the perfect antidote for all of the poison that

you wrote"

-Elvis Costello

update April 6, 2020: Sorry, we just had 8+ hours downtime due to a server problem. Restoring from backups took soooo long, but everything is back and no data was lost. Ay yay yay! Anyhow, hope everyone is well with the virus stuff.
