Digging in the dirt, throwing the dirt at the sky. Drinking, lots of drinking, and a dose or two of harder stuff. Unsentimental pain. Anger, rise up, the wild dogs barking fury. Don't steal me away, white lady. Get off, get out, let me be, let me drink and throw dirt and don't touch me with your soap and sponges tryna bathe me in your ugly tears, get off.
