Lyrics to Proverbial Blues A long, long way into the distance
But not so far from where you'd grown
Stood a mountain of complications
The likes of which I'd never known

Sound familiar?

You invited me indoors
For coffee and a slice of lemon
I rambled up the stairwell
Like a lanky Armageddon

Does this sound familiar?

You threw yourself upon me
Seemingly when I least expected
Still it's better to be startled
Than stone-faced, sombre and dejected

Does this sound familiar? Does this sound Familiar?

I'm the messiah for the maudlin
The prince of the thieves
And you could cut my legs from under me
If I'd just get off my knees

The valerian kicked in
And my anatomy went limp
And I wondered where along the timeline
I became such a god awful wimp

Does this sound familiar?

I tossed and I turned and I turned and I tossed
And then I turned some more
My sheets got caught amid the whirlwind
And I forgot what I'd been lying there for

Does this sound familiar?

I lit a lamp in light
Of all that I had sought to ruminate
But in the depths of my mind
A fear began to illuminate

Does this sound familiar? Does this sound familiar?

I'm the messiah for the maudlin
The prince of the thieves
And you could cut my legs from under me
If I'd just get off my knees

Now my body feels isolated
And my words are just a shield
And I'm judging every passer-by
Like a contemporary Holden Caulfield
How do you fight those inhibitions
that keep you surly and aware?
Just borrow some courage from the Dutch
And brother, you won't even care

I'm the messiah for the maudlin
The prince of the thieves
And you could cut my legs from under me
If I'd just get off my knees
