Piss on the cliches
Your friends will bring around
as if it were ice cream and DVDs
like “It’s all for a reason”
and “it’s a learning experience”
or “I know how you feel”
Because they really don’t
No one does me included
You’ve just listened to too many
Bedroom acoustic poets
Who’ve put in such great words
The feeling of their own
That may run parrallel
But not in front or behind
But so easily wraps around you
And whatever it is you feel
But don’t take it to your broken heart
Cos in all the ways of history
This event has never happened before
And no rules exist on how you’re to deal with it
So do whatever you feel like
Take the pain like the brave girl you are
I’m sorry for your lost
I’m ears if you need me
But that Jeff Buckley record’s going to kill you
With a hurt that isn’t yours
And no cliches apply here
So you’ll learn whatever you’ll want to learn
And take your own path to OK
