where a fireball resides
my stomach burns and so it hides
hopefully this Pepto-Bismol helps.

Bismol? sounds scientific.
adapted into society to be just another word.
you donít see items named brodifacoum
sold on shelves like gum.

Iíd wish the same for stereotypes,
but most of them are true.
look at your Gardner, look at the black male in prison,
and the white kid with 3 strikes whoís out on bail.

but anything is possible; thatís why weíre the greatest nation ever.
because ever since birth we were injected with the idea that anything is possible
we digested the belief and it ran through our veins faster than blood.
or drugs.

sometimes i want to write with a pen
just so i wont be able to go back and erase my mistakes.

a writing utensil metaphor for life.

and so what if?
i was 15, strapped up, and full of hatred
but i couldnít be the next Mexican kid whoís life got wasted.

but but but
if i donít buy that hot new product on the teli
Iím not gonna end up being who i want to be!
but who is it that i want to be?
hold up let me go ask my TV

apparently want to be someone who lost 60 lbs faster than light!
and blonde with blue eyes.
and get a 10,000 loan overnight!
its true; Gary Coleman told me so
and i donít know about you but i trust security guards

conquered by technology and blondes
and shot art in the heart with a dart.

but no baby
no; not me.
cuz Iím me

and in ďanything is possibleĒ
i believe.

A strong satirical take on the age of mass gullibility--I had a grim chuckle over this.

Cheers
Bill
