In Strangers We Trust

from Losel Vila by Kleenex Girl Wonder



While the economy crashed, you were out there
Basking in the sun
Playing badminton with a beach ball, dancing,
Laughing, having fun
We blacked out at sundown, and woke up
In an ambulance
Where I had an epiphany that hit me
Like a Mack truck:

Compared to being left
For dead on a bench, God, having a job sucks!
This therapy is intense,
Those trust...was it falls or jumps?
We've lost a lot of blood.

And no one ever accused you of not looking
Out for number one.
So why must you always feign ignorance when I ask you
If something's up?
You ignored me for more than a week; surprise! Just another cheap punch in the gut.
But when you said you would call the police if I didn't come over — what the pho?!

We claim to crave comfort, but that's crazy! We must
Be utterly insane to place trust in strangers we love.

You try to do what's right.
But the morals of stories you read
Run together in your mind.
And you whip em out a little more than you need!
I was just tryin' to say "Hi!"
I don't know why you're so scared of me
But now that I've seen the terror in your eyes
I don't need your charity!

End of the day, reality is the bottom line.
If you don't wanna pay the fine,
Just stop at the stop light.
If you can get your head
Around hedging your bets
You might end up with half a mind.
But whaddid you expect
Playing Russian roulette
With strangers to pass the time?
That's life.
