paranoid thoughts in tow,
i watch the world fill up with snow,
and feel the nervous twitches flow.
mind still reeling from the blow,
is mine the first or last to go?
riding till the gas tanks low,
with some strangers i might know.
this girl in my lap - friend or foe?
i've known her for an hour or so,
since a long, long time ago.
all personality lays low
so neuroticism's head can show.
a grin gains a rotten glow.
tonight, i can't pay what i owe.
don't know if he can take a 'no,'
so i quiver like a pro,
get my bag, undo the bow,
take it meticulous and slow,
blow my nose, remove the dough,
and meet my friend to say hello.
