about

I'm not asking for forgiveness,
I'm not asking for love,
I'm not asking for your soft white lies,
or your secret touch,
I'm not asking for heaven,
though I've been to hell
I'm not asking for the things I want,
I know that con too well.

I'm just asking to ease my thirst
down at Jacob's well. x3

I'm not asking for a garden
to hide in the cool cool night,
though the devil's flowers
have their own soft delights,
I'm not asking for a trumpet,
to blow back the tides of sin,
that's why I have these flowers,
that's why I have this gin.

I'm just asking to ease my thirst
down at Jacob's well. x3

I'm not asking for silence,
there'll be plenty when they put me down,
I"m not asking for ecstasy
or a million dollar sound,
your poetry is flawless,
you've mastered every form,
but since we're being honest brother,
it's such a fucking bore.

I'm just asking to ease my thirst
down at Jacob's well. x3
