The Man

Held together by magnets and gum.
You were someone special from the start.
Dropped from the womb
As a star destined to be the one,
But nobody told you it’d be so lonely
On this mountaintop.
Looking down on
The likes of me.
You do what you can
To cope and learn to take
Advantage of the fact that you’re
Quite literally the man.
Money, drugs, trips and fame
All roll up at your feet.
Turns out you can stay busy
With it all and you soon forget
That you ever felt any pain.
