Happily Ever After

(This is a song written for a friend's band)

This song is about addiction,
But not to cigarettes
(Though I’d like a pack).
This isn’t about alcohol,
Though I wouldn’t pass it up.
This isn’t about drugs,
I’d never touch the stuff
(Come on, it was just that one time.)
This is just a cheesy song
To the one I love.

Over-dramatics dripping in blood
Seem typical for me.
An emotional heart guarded
Is what most people see.
It’s all I show, down blow by blow
Though one can see on through.
It’s a cheesy song about love,
The love I have for you.
(Hey, I told you it was corny.
You said it was cheesy.
Ah, fuck it.)

This deserves a movie track
On some lame chick-flick
Where the guy gets the girl
and all goes off without tick.
Guy gets girl, guy loses girl,
guy gets girl back, happily ever after.
Too bad my love’s a dude,
Holy gay, keep it down.
Pat Robertson feels this one.
Fred Phelps damns you to hell.
(Hey, that didn’t rhyme…
Fuck you. I rhyme all the time.)

So it’s a happy song
from the king of remorse.
As the cool kids all said
Love’s love, it’s love, of course.
The Jedi’s feel this one –
along with Pat Robertson
and I’m down with the force.
So if George Lucas sues
I forgot to cite my source.

Holy pop culture reference, Batman,
We’ll all say love is love, it’s love, you know.
So emotionally charged –
More daunting than that fucking bloody crow.
So hit the fan with shit,
It’s what the faggots do
According to God Hates Fags –
Oh, gee, I never knew
That love could be so queer
Or so goddamn taboo.
So, now’s the end, my love.
Of the song, not you.
