The Ballad of ’96

3 bricks
Bibles too
Did any of it mean
Shit to you?
I just want to know
and I refuse to beg
you know me well enough
or at least I thought you did…

I say I’m not crazy
but I know it is not true
’cause ain’t nothing rational
about still fucking with you
I made a pledge
I take honor seriously
and all I ever ask
is that you’re honest with me
you’ve seen me down
so you count me out?
What happened to
the benefit of the doubt?
3 brands on deck
yet somehow, we own 2
and I’ve always wondered
where were you
before your life changed
before we got old
did you understand the stories we were told
is unity a word you sometimes use
when you can’t think of a nicer way to abuse?
3 decisions
3 hearts, 3 minds
and yet I don’t know yours
and you pretend to know mine?
I ain’t never scared
I ain’t never a fake
sometimes I ain’t been right-truth-
but you lost your Bible
and you lost your brick
and clearly, dear you’ve lost sight-I’d die for you
it doesn’t need to be restated
this is shit that should be in your bones
and if something has happened
to cause you to retract love
trust me, I’ve been knowin’
you know me well enough
or at least I thought you did…
So speaking of “did”-
Did any of it mean
Shit to you?
Are you true blue
or do I act like you’re dead?
I just want to know fellow Virgo
and I refuse to beg…
