You failed your final exam.
What's worse is that you never knew
Why on earth you put yourself in
For calculating the bimbambim.

Read the Russian writers
Write an ancient poem
Ride the Transsib railway
Rail against your doom
One more cup of coffee
On the sunny side of the moon
Then you must leave your lingering lovers
And rage against your doom.

You lost your beautiful smile.
What's worse is you don't miss her much.
You never felt warmly about
Her imperfections and different views.

I was so sure
That our chauffeur was a celebrity
Who had fallen from grace.
My golden hair streams out in the wind,
Keeps my eyes from drowning
In a gorgeous late-afternoon sun.

We ride downhill to the sea.
The sailors are busy
But they take it easy.
Why should they not?
Why should they not?
Tin soldiers in the waves.
I'd better fasten my seatbelts.
When I told you my dream,
I was not sure anymore.
