Getting Off With Insanity – Written Thursday 24th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Getting Off With Insanity

do not hurt me again
i am melted by the pain
i have got back –
what i gave out
reversal of change
you know we would work
we do not just flirt
but it is goodbye again
goodbye to the good times
hello to strange ways
welcome to the lonely days
you are jesus in drag
full of life,
but not as cruel as my dad
what does it all mean
do not look at me
i have never really seen
not this reality
i just want to meet someone good
get off with insanity

James Garratt – Thursday 24th November 1994
