There is nothing that would offend you. There is nothing you do not know, you let me know. You know so much it hurts you, and the pain is something you're willing to show. So you saddle up beside me in your faux-hawk, "I'm alternative" veneer. You say, "excuse me for a minute, but I've got to take this call." You take the call. And you talk much louder than you should, and you talk at length about nothing at all. You wink at me before you're through. You sign off with "I love you, too". / We're all going, all going down on the slide. On the sugar slide. Gonna get some sweet treats. Whoever gets the lollipop must go back to the, back to the top. / I sit there while you order and I look up at the posters on the wall. A plenitude of legends caught forever in their youth, so beautiful. Regurgitated music played too loud pulls me back to the crowd. / We're all going, all going down on the slide, on the sugar slide. Gonna get some sweet treats. Whoever gets the lollipop will go back to the top. / You might not ever know me, and I might not ever care but all I know is that you look at me like candy as I motion that it's time for me to go. I glance into the mirror to see if there's really something sweet in me/ We're all going, all going down...
