on the threshold of a dream
With apologies to Mr. Sandman. *G*
Oh, Mr. Robot, lend me a trick
I need to understand just what makes you tick.
How do you stand there, so unfeeling
When every day sets my senses reeling?
Mr. Robot - Oh, where were you
When I stood hand in hand and said "I do"
To someone that I so trusted?
Too darn bad that he was so disgusted.
Mr. Robot, I sure could have used
Your fortitude when I was abused...
Who's that creature there in the corner?
Why didn't anyone bother to warn her?
Mr. Robot, I just couldn't learn.
I kept loving and kept getting burned.
In a meeting, facing the snickers
Surely there most be some death quicker
Than knowing the love of your life
Early last week took him a wife...
I willed myself to a vacant stare
But how I wanted to just not care!
Oh Mr. Robot, you do look so kind.
Please explain, if you wouldn't mind
How I can escape from this hell?
Mr. Robot, lend me your shell!
