Young Psychopath

Shoulda been learnin’ the guitar
That’s a good thing for a young psychopath

I agree it didn’t do much for Charlie Manson
And come to think of it, painting pictures didn’t save Hitler
I just can’t believe nothing coulda saved him
Like poetry or a radio show or fixin’ cars

Maybe he’ll find Jesus in prison
That’s a good thing for a dying psychopath

I don’t know but I’m told
The blood in Johannesburg runs down the drain backwards
And would you believe it if you found the missing link
Lying on the floor of your bathroom?
