"Little Rhymes" as written by Jonathan Donahue, Sean Mackowiak and Jeffrey Mercel....
Stairs, to nowhere climb
I take them, all the time
Crawling on my knees
Walking that old fine line

And when I'm alone and scared
I think up little rhymes
They would make no sense to you
But I make them all the time

[Chorus]
And time is all mine
And time is all mine

It's the little pills you find
Crushed to dust, rolling out of sight
They and up in the strangest places
But I take them all the time

[Chorus]

When everyone, is false
I tell them I'm just fine
I can't, remember their names
But I fake them all the time

[Chorus: x2]

And when I'm alone and scared
I think up little rhymes
They would make no sense to you
But I make them all the time

    General CommentHaunting song - yeah routines - and shit - but there is an escape which is private and that is something good - There is your own world to go to - it is always your place - you can always go there......your time, your drugs - booze - whatever......escape on your terms to your place........

    Song MeaningWell, I'm somewhat a poet and have my owns of venting through personal creativity.
    Takes me to places where I'm alone, and it's better than drugs. The whole "pills" thing.
    It's comforting . . . and he uses his ability to rhyme or whatever ability he owns
    To cope and enjoy himself with what little he has.

    Little Rhymes - Mercury Rev.
