I was going door to door
selling encyclopaedias
like a Witness

He insisted I come in            forget my faith
and talk about Traffic's first LP

We agreed the whole album reeked of dope
and then he wondered if I was interested
in a human skull            he kept in the garage

Next his wife came back
like a warden
Time to settle down
raise a family
She patted me on the head
Sent me on my way

I'm Not Sure What This Is

Stuck at your table
to listen
your drunken lines
wear me down
no rest

It's not much of a dance
to wait
to feel
the sadness
