You're staring at the same old view
Held on fast--it became old news, and I
I'll be gone 'fore long
At least I'm gone now
Hallelujah for that

Now you know what you lost
Now you are the thieves that you pardon
Search for need that will never come
Hallelujah for that

There's more for their own now
It's time for me to forget
I don't need a reason to, so
So long
Stray dog
You're only joker, no
Joker no more

Oh, to each their own
But when you can call on your mind
Just crying to hold back tears sometimes
Wasted, wasted
Before you forget what you came here for

You need to see the signs
And you need to stop wasting time
And selling the same damn story
Story that you heard before
And I waited for you but you were long gone

Stray dog
You're only
Only stray joker, no
Joker no more
Stray dog

    General CommentI think it may be someone who's finally had enough of a friend or acquaintance who pretends to be a victim when he or she is really the attacker of everybody else.
