human prize

(shane gooding/alisha westerman)

i could be a human prize · flashbulb scars, pale blue eyes · and take my limo home · and i could stroll the city street · hear them stare, see them scream · and feel so alone · with who, owl? · i could be a billionaire · tie my tie, lose my hair · and take my learjet home · and i could have an easy sleep · live off stock and count the sheep · and end my days alone · this got me out of the office · i could be a working dad · feed my kids, bleed my hands · bring the paycheck home · and i could be a single mom · put on my face and work three jobs · and do it all alone · with who, owl? · this got me out of the office
