Coloring the sky with ash
Got a foot in the door,
God knows what for,
and it'll cut me down to size.
Stupidity tries.
Everything here is free,
everything but you and me.
This painting never dries.
Stupidity tries.
So then a shoulder
raised a cheer
coloring the sky with ash
because they found some privateer
to sail across the sea of trash.
The enemy is within,
don't confuse me with him.
The truth is otherwise.
Stupidity tries,
and so I go from floor to floor
looking for a port of call.
Another drunk conquistador
conquering the governor's ball.
I couldn't think of a thing
that I hope tomorrow brings.
Oh what a surprise:
Stupidity tries
