the songwriter

slushy words escape his pen
while the dicitionary feels bent
one more verse that sounds like
it could have been from anywhere
(but the fans don’t care)

in his world it rains again
‘memories stain’, yes, we all know that now
a smooth rhyme can patch up
almost every weak line
(and the fans won’t mind)

hey you, there, at the top
maybe you should drop it
or try a little bit harder

hey you, I’m looking down
on your music and I frown
because nice is not enough

someone I know said “he’s great”
yes, well… so, okay
guess I didn’t get that memo
or did I?
(let me ask you why)

he’s property in this venue
and probably in a few more places as well
and my friends are always joining
the mediocre crowd
(at least the songs are loud)

hey you, there, at the top
maybe you should drop it
or try, try a little bit harder

hey you, I’m looking down
on your music and I frown
because nice just isn’t enough

hey you, there, at the top
why should you drop it
or even try a little bit harder

hey you, I’m looking down
you made it and I still frown
but it’s nice that you believe it’s enough
