John Frusciante - Niandra LaDes And Usually Just A T-Shirt

Untitled #3

A dove is a glove
That I wear on my heart
And though I like to dress smart
It doesn’t have any part of the world of fashion
And you’re there to put me down
And I’m sick of the frowns
That follow me around
I would lie the sky
But there’s no reason why
I should stay in this world within nose of a girl
It’s turned up so
Loud that you hear it resist
The clouds
I’ve never been here
Although you’re physically here
You’re pushing me away
To decay like the day that I loved

There is a girl blabbing nothing outside my window
What do I have to show
To a world that the only way to destroy
Is to die like a baby boy
I could be happy in infinity
Of the space of my eyelid
But I know I’m somewhere else
Where the words on this page
Will be the scribbling nonsense they are
And it would be real
And I eat my last meal
Wishing I could feel
But now I don’t even know
If I’m real
