“the cock”

[song lyrics]

V1

—  
i measure time in cigarettes
and distance in dollars.
i sober rhyme in deference
to old friends with blue collars.
— 

V2

i keep the beat within reach
and the snare is set to stun.
all i lack is the good sense
to say enough is enough.
 

CHORUS 1

just one more grab
at the cock
of rock glory.
one more mad dash
thru the throng
of mass whoredom.
 

V3

 —

i measure lust in barrelsful
that seldom turn out fun.
when the moon gives way to the sun
it is me, i’m the one, singing
 

CHORUS 1

— 
just one more grab
at the cock
of rock glory.
one more mad dash
thru the throng
of mass whoredom.
 
— 
 

CHORUS 2

just one more grab
at the cock
of rock glory.
one more badass
knock’em dead
allegory.
