I will light the skies this evening,
With a dream that won’t come true,
Jean is daydream believing,
This is pointing straight at you,
I will tug upon those heartstrings,
If you keep me in the dark,
I will dam the river Ganges,
I will sing with the skylark.
And yes,
I will be a better man.

I will light the match this morning,
‘Til it burns right up my arm,
How faithfully I’ve loved you,
Kept your job on Maggie’s Farm,
Tiger, Tiger burning bright,
Running round and round the tree,
I will keep these images mixed,
In my own insanity.
And yes,
I will be a better man.

I will drink the sweet elixir,
Sup the poison from the vine,
I will walk a thousand miles,
Just to hear you say you’re mine,
I will pray to any deity,
That you care to create,
Bounce those hopes off the deafness,
That it can’t reiterate.
And yes,
I will be a better man.

Here’s a nod to my inspirations,
Here’s a glass raised to their arts,
Here’s a second-guessed acknowledgement
Of the sum of all their parts,
Here’s the letter that you sent me,
Here’s the woman that you laid,
Here’s the walrus-strewn discography,
May you walk unafraid.
And yes,
I will be a better man.

And yes,
I will be a better man.
