858 : 8/15/00 : Admit Defeat

Admit defeat avert my eyes
there is no consolation prize
dying for the slimmest hope
hoping God will give me more rope
throw the towel in I’m all through
at least for now at least that’s true
I can’t wait fifteen minutes more
trying to stare a hole through the floor
in a one way tie for last
not much of an iconoclast
no not much of a hero true
so paint my little wagon blue
I might as well go on the road
let all the rubes watch me implode
a tent revival kind of thing
for which this last short tune I sing
