Lyrics

Go Go Gone

Written By: mark prellberg

She's written many stories
Some sad, some true, some long
Funky, living stories
At least one hundred strong
My favorite of them all?
It's titled 'Go Go Gone'

A fragile tale of weakness
This tour de force of prose
Strips the rave from craving
Magnifies her woes
Autobiographical?
Of course, one must suppose

Go go gone
Her spiritual psalm
The no-sermon song
Go go gone

She's painted all these pictures
They're bold, they're dark, they're known
Vivid, abstract paintings
Pastel color drawn
Which one is most worthy?
Must be 'Go Go Gone'

A canvas crown of beauty
This self-portrait of scorn
Captures all her fury
In a weary, winsome form
And when the hues have faded
The result is muse forlorn

Go go gone
Her spiritual psalm
An ambivalent tome
Go go gone

She's taken plenty photos
Some sharp, some real, some flawed
Moving, breathing snapshots
Depicting life gone wrong
The standout of the lot?
She's named it 'Go Go Gone'

An image for the ages
This eight by ten of shame
With its focus on her failings
Her guilt as its frame
She could destroy the picture
Still the negative remains

Go go gone
Her spiritual psalm
The no-sermon song
An ambivalent tome
Go go gone
