Left Behind Again

 

Left behind again

Latchkey child again

Straighten up, straighten out

You’re not fit to find again

 

Less than, lower than, not up to par

White trash, trailer rash, bondo car

Steal my cash, keep your rash

You never needed me far

Should’ve left that door ajar

 

Every woman wants to be the one

His eyes can’t leave, or be undone

His leader not his feeder not his breeder oh no

His lover and his cover and reader oh no

 

But I was left behind again

A latchkey child again

Open door, another whore

A twist in the turnstyle again

 

I was left behind again

Lost in the noise again

Not worth leaving home for

No Air bnb in Rome for

Just left behind again

 

Better when I’m high

Lesser when I’m dry

Jimi Janis Scott Weiland

Let behind again

Nothing to find again
