You Can’t Hurry Joe (Draft 0)

I seek leave, leave to calm my mind
I seek to catch, catch the airline

But Joe said you can’t just regress;
no … um,
you’ll just have to regret,

he said, rescue isn’t easy:
it’s a game of spin and fake

You can’t hurry Joe
no you live with mistakes,
you gotta mistrust, and fall away
no spinning lies too much to take

Yet how can I discount the shootings and shouts
until I find the egress from stress, find my love again
and now the only hope that leaps to mind is you
when I picture you alive, yes, but hope’s nearly screwed

Yet I remember Simon said
You can’t hurry Joe
no you live with mistakes,
you gotta mistrust, and fall away
no spinning lies too much to take

Oh knock, knock, at the door; who’s there about
a Joe joke as he watches his watch, watches coffins shout.
No, I can’t wait for a love to remember me because
I’ve heard about the hangings, the rapes, the many executions they celebrate
and those ugly few words infuriate ’cause

Yes I remember they said
You can’t hurry Joe
no you live with mistakes,
you gotta mistrust, and fall away
no spinning lies too much to take
