Cheshire Adams - Society's Waste (lyrics)

(completed early this past Tuesday evening)


Set me aflame
On somebody's porch
Stamp me flat
Tryin' to put out the scorch
Hose me down
Wash me to the curb
Down the sewer
Where I shall not disturb

'Cause I'm society's waste
Created by man, given no plan
Society's taste is
Just do me away, however they can

All on this earth
Got a purpose to serve
Somewhere, someone
Got a hell of a nerve
To say I ain't got
Nor do I deserve
And so, with that
Down the toilet I curve

'Cause I'm society's waste
Got my own special zeus, gave me no use
Society's taste is
Gather the juice, and just let it loose on me

Leave me alone
Where nobody goes
Where I can just lie
And decompose
I'll just give way
To whatever grows
Could be a fungus
Or a nice bright rose
Or maybe I'm just dog food
Who knows? Who cares? Why should they?

'Cause I'm society's waste
Got creators who gave me nothing to do
Society's taste is
To have me just go POOF right into the blue
Society's waste, babe
Created by man, given no plan
Society's taste is
Just do me away, however they can
