I'm holding here a book Notable, but not the greatest Stolen for me by the latest In a long line of thieves And I'm just about to drop it Down that manhole of memories When I realize it doesn't bother me Like love's mementos usually do And I look up to see who's different here The latest me or the latest you Course, you're the kind of guy who doesn't lie He just doctors everything Chooses some unassuming finger And quietly moves his wedding ring Who rewrites his autobiography For any pretty girl who'll sing But you can't fool the queen, baby Cuz I married the king And maybe it was I who betrayed his majesty With no opposite reality Like a puddle with no reflection Of the sky or the trees But after my dreaded beheading I tied that sucker back on with a string And I guess I'm pretty different now Considering I kissed you on the street that night On the far side of four But I didn't like the taste In my mouth or yours And ignoring the persona you wore for my benefit For once I had the balls to call it Just call it But a lesson must be lived In order to be learned And the clarity to see and stop this now That is what I've earned And maybe it was I who betrayed his majesty With no opposite reality Like a puddle with no reflection Of the sky or the trees But after my dreaded beheading I tied that sucker back on with a string And I guess I'm pretty different now Considering I'm holding here a book Notable, but not the greatest Stolen for me by the latest In a long line of thieves And I'm just about to drop it Down that manhole of memories When I realize it doesn't bother me And heartache not so dire Cuz I looked up to see integrity Finally won over desire
