BLACK EYED UZI
© 2004, Steven Savitz (The Spitshine Kid)

I don’t know where I’m going to
And I don’t know where I been

Like a light inside a firefly
I’m gliding on belief

I don’t know why
I even care to try
But I’m crazy man, that’s me.

Got a key in my pocket
But unlike you
It don’t own me any more

I hope that you’ll still visit me
Through the spokes of my misery

I know I am a living ghost
Out the corner of your eye

‘Cause I’m thru with doors
And windows and the mirror
And the telephone and wine

I don’t know why
I’m laughin and I’m cryin’
But I’m crazy man, crazy man.

And I don’t think I
Can even bat an eye
This time, black baby this time, this time

Welcome to my night
It’s a Hindenberg blaze
but I just can’t seem
To unwind this maze.

I can’t run away
cause I’m stepping on a mine
got my shoes hangin’ up
on the telephone line

You can set your sights
On the crown of my head
You can pull all the triggers
Till I’m poisoned with lead

Forever has no meaning
When you’re living day to day
A thousand years are smoking
In the crucible of love

Aiding and abetting
While you just sit back and watch
a televised beheading
Only takes a pint of scotch

You’re canvassing my town
With the promises you made
But you bomb every village
‘Till we all fade away

Crawlin on my side
through a pile of debris
you’re a tanker full of pride
and you’re burnin up the sea

See how they scatter
When the devil’s at their door
Watch em all start to run
When the rain begin to pour

Too late for religion
Though you need it more and more

I have to write this epitaph
‘Fore they nail me to the door

My planet drifts away from this
And there’s nothing that I can do.
