I Was a Tear Gas Grenade

Written By: Dan O'Donnell

These blessed unions between fire and smoke
or convenient marriages of flashes to thunderstrokes,
they say they'll stay together
and they will
but no they won't!
So you'll be off behind that morphine stare
for as long as you're still there
And I remember when I even cared
before I won this game of solitaire

But weren't we a terror in our day?
It was like the world had passed away and
You were the funeral parade
I was a tear gas grenade!

Hey! Remember we went camping with that leaky tent
and I would crowd you into puddles, it was hell
but it was heaven sent
Misery loves your company
and I love to torment
you though my instincts tell me
I should just ignore you instead
the days are gone when I could make you wish you were dead
by messing with your head

Oh, but wasn't I a terror in my day?
You'd have thought the world had passed away and
You were the funeral parade
I was a tear gas grenade!

I don't know how
the corpse in you survived the past year
I guess dying is the cure for cancer (and)
"Drop dead" was an awesome answer
to the last question I will ever ask you....

Oh, but was I not a terror in my day?
It was like the world had died away
You were the funeral parade
I was a tear gas grenade
