I sang to no one today
because I could hear your voice
telling me I'm selfish, moaning
cause I always wear black.
You're too hip-hop to ever know
the value of Johnny Cash or
solitary confinement. In here
it's quiet, out there it's Sunday;
when the faithful hymn together
and others hangover in silence.
I turn on the radio;
love songs, no thanks.
