Painted You Silly With My All Idealistic Broad-Brush

Roamed the streets feeling merry from the betrayal
Let’s stretch it I thought to see how’ll be my portrayal
When a friend asked me to imagine a water body
And I chose a waterfall to see so much pain on a nobody
Didn’t take it to heart, I was young then but not so callow
I knew I’d win, but the hopes just couldn’t make me shallow
Didn’t know what I was looking for, just knew I had to relate
To the deepest mischief, the desires, and the vengeance I predate
So I don’t get moved when I see you as a simpleton
Years of walking makes me see through Franklin Templeton
If you could buy me with cash I would have made it with my first crush
And not painted you silly with my all idealistic broad-brush

They keep the cash off me and wonder why I lay low,
They can’t handle the other side, let them try with that wild blow
I wasn’t primed in Yale, nor was I spoilt in the big schools
I sharpened my wares with the road, with an eye on their cesspools
So let them shimmy around laughing hard at my bank balance
It was taken so down to leaven the road to your grace’s prevalence
When there won’t be no huff to wonder how we made it
When there won’t be no puff to figure how we’ll shade it
So while the city goes crazy from what it’s all come down to
Reconcile with my quest to have two monsters to come home to
For if you could buy me with cash I would have made it with my first crush
And not painted you silly with my all idealistic broad-brush
