in the bathroom getting stoned, with a doctor of the law
the captain’s ricocheting like a racquetball
it was Tommy Boy at first, equal access to the floor
then turned to dostoyevsky when i pressed record

oh if i can, you can too
i turned a penny to a nickel that i can’t afford to lose

i’ve got an armchair diagnosis about why you’re so desperate to be in charge
braggin bout the values of your baseball cards
your daddy plucks his eyebrows then i watch you do the same
your mother always called you by your brother’s name

oh if you can, i can too
after some time i find, that’s not exactly true
should i be so glad that i’m not you?
without the hammer and the sickle can i safely call you friend?
