Shame Like Heroin (Explicit lyrics, you should know by now)

Recommended Posts

Freshly recorded!!

Roger was born on a summer day

On a boat floatin on the San Pablo bay

His father wasn't there and when he heard, he had nothin to say

Roger grew up in San Rafael

In his mother's house, to escape the hell

He was trapped in at the hand of his father's evil spell

Roger lives in a candyland

His soul is blessed with a harsh hit hand

Whatever it takes to get there again

Spend his days in search of shame like heroin

And if he fails to please

He'll be brought to his knees

In high school Roger joined the wrestling team

Just to feel the other boys overpower his esteem

He would rub against their skin to fulfill his nightly dream

He didn't want p*ssy, he didn't want love

That wasn't the release he was thinkin of

His salvation came in leather gloves

Roger lives in a candyland

His soul is blessed with a harsh hit hand

Whatever it takes to get there again

Spend his days in search of shame like heroin

And if he fails to please

He'll be brought to his knees

At the age of 17, Roger moved out of his dad's

To find a place where he'd be free, free from all the thoughts he had

He got a studio in the Castro

He spent his nights alone with Phil Collins CD's and astro-glide.

this is very, very well-written, I think. I love the poetic use of the title, and you're being subtle and shouting at the same time with the words. Original, minimal use of words yet very descriptive, I really like this.
