Cockroach Goddess Lyrics

by Time

She's my cockroach goddess, promise my shoe will never fall upon you
And if it ever does, I'll cry myself to sleep covered in your blood,
That's love, she's my drug, release the doves
Just because she was everything I ever was
It all started with a hole in the carpet
Cupid aimed the arrow, my heart was the target
Tell the exterminator not to come or approach
Cause no police or Orkin man could ever take my roach
I'm in my stage coach, here's a toast to the girl I loved the most
It's a damn shame that .38 made her a ghost
Now I'm in Mexico with a little bit of mescaline and coke
Of course I'm the same
I just got a little bit of horse in my veins
I'm galloping looking for that yage I'm sorry
It was an Aztec sacrifice and not even Cortez could stop me
Blink once, I'm home trying to find that face I fancy
If these walls could talk, they would scream like a banshee
My eyes are dancing I'm looking for her in the pantry
Damn she's gone, guess that's why I had to write this god damn song

Shot glass on the head
Better yet apple arrow
Let me take a shot, I hope I don't miss (don't miss)
If I do you will be missed
I missed, I'm pissed
All that's left is a hole in the wall from my fist

I'm still on the run
But I'm safe cause that lake swallowed my gun
Now I'm alone I got time to pass
Cause of that bloody shattered shot glass
When I close my eyes I see her crawling on the wall I can't escape her
Cause her face and mine are on every newspaper
Her last words were
"I can't watch this you know I can't stand the site of blood"
But the only witnesses were this shovel and the mud
She was the only one that had the patience for me
She could adapt to my problems and even take radiation for me
But I'll get off trial court fines ain't nothing pesos pay my fees
I see her when I blink, her eyelashes were a narcotic
I got an infection called guilt and addiction's my anti-biotic
She was my bed bug fiancÚ, my fountain of youth like Ponce
I asked for forgiveness 3000 times you could call me Andre
I was her Jacky, she was my Maggie Cassidy
The feds came to my house and we're asking for me
I said you think god created this world that's blasphemy
Why would he create hell, go ahead boys in blue sand castle me
She used to give me lap dances now she's
A roach belly dancing on her back
She never came home I called up my man doc he told me to relax
I opened up my closest she was dead, I killed her with my own traps
And that's the facts

Shot glass on the head
Better yet apple arrow
Let me take a shot, I hope I don't miss (don't miss)
If I do you will be missed
I missed, I'm pissed
All that's left is a hole in the wall from my fist

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
