This might not be easy
To understand

Ra-ra-ra-writer's block
And a glass of wine
On an empty stomach
Over-used themes
White on black
(White wine)
And the same old differences
Between one man
And his ideal.

T-t-t-tattered and in chains
He laughed at his hideous and mocking reflection
Even as the executioner's axe fell

Haunted by the ghosts
Of a beery night out:
It is cheap
And so I drink it
And he's laughing
What to do
About this laughing?
