Lyrics

You think you’ve got yourself a new friend
But is she really there for you?
A hybrid child-grown-adult friend
Who thinks her mother but a tool
To guard against the water side
Regarding just the daughter’s side
And to carry water too

Rage, such rage
No gauge to tamp down the rage

You think you’ve coined yourself a new trend
But will she really let you do?
Those deep-down chasms that you must mend
Can they be healed before you’re through?
May yet be some time left
May yet be some rhyme left
To tame the bitter shrew

Gauge, engage
That stage may still exist for you

And so I went to California
But could not get inside her door
Unless I’d fake like I adored ya
Unless I’d sell out like a whore

I went to California
The scent of fresh begonia
Lying hazy in the air
Flying lazy through the air
Gliding crazy on the air

Rage, such rage
No gauge to tamp it down
