lyrics

That poet of mine
That poet of mine

Sits in the kitchen and stares at the wall
He gets that way when he can't write at all
That poet of mine
That poet of mine

But just between you and I
I worry about his head sometimes
That poet of mine
That poet of mine

Sometimes he turns away from the wall
And calls me things I don't like to be called
That poet of mine
That poet of mine

Says this house is trifle, even at best
Daily life is just prolonged death
That poet of mine
That poet of mine

That poet of mine skims the Bible in bed
I feel like the target of the things he says
That poet of mine
That poet of mine

Says beauty is everything, God is dead
Can you get that through your atheist head?
That poet of mine
That poet of mine

That poet of mine says nice things sometimes
Our souls have touched and now we are entwined
We don't need money and we don't need shelter
Cause we have horizons and we've got each other

I said
Do you really believe that, cause I don't think I do
I've got enough troubles without listening to you
I'm a little afraid of the things we are becoming
If there's no God to run from, then why the hell are we running?
