when i heard from a good friend, that you had gone in search of a new life
i thought that it must be so nice, to leave your problems behind
but if i may be so bold, as to offer my advice
i just hope this message reaches you, the address was hard to find

first let me suggest that you get far enough away
from any enemies you've made
you can never be too safe
consider changing your last name

with the oil-slick economy, and better paid border police
getting a job wont be so bad
but if you get to needing cash
you can always pawn your jewelry, or other valuables you have

lies are most effective, when they're perversions of the truth
but why am i telling you
you've got the kind of tounge you're used to hearing on the news

but no reason to stay lonely
an ocean of warm bodies
they will be quick in coming
with you flashing all my money

but most importantly, if you ever see me on the street
that's the cue for you to run- i will only count to three
'cause darling i told the kids i stabbed you, and watched as you slowly died
and unlike their coke-whore mother, daddy never lies

when i recite the story, just before they go to sleep
they each insist that i repeat, every detail of the scene

but their favorite part
is always the face
'cause to be sure you felt the pain
i had to slowly twist the blade

of all misfortune, the worst kind of fate is to have been happy.

I feel bad to say this, but I laughed and really enjoyed it. The first three stanzas were stellar and reminded me of something you'd hear from The Dresden Dolls (which if you haven't heard, I suggest you download the song Truce). Thanks for this twisted, dark and dirty little gem.
