Story

Sometimes, I think that the reason that so many Republicans and other conservatively minded-folk have a problem with gays is that all they know of gays is married Republican senators in airport restrooms. I don’t know if they know this or not, but any time a politician comes down on any gay issue, the countdown clock begins to when they will be caught in flagrante delicto with some call boy, dusted with crack. I feel awful for the women who must endure that ultimate betrayal. Here’s my thing, if you are gay, and want to marry a woman for whatever reason, fine. I don’t care what you do with your life; however, stick with it. Be prepared to honor that decision, and the family you create. Using a woman to "save face" is one of the most offensive, ball-less things you can do.

Lyrics

beauty surrenders to
logical shots in the dark
but what are the chances
that one little glance
could do harm?
Seems they’re pretty good…
 
it’s peculiar the way he disappeared
 
she goes all to pieces
when he stands next to me
and it was so familiar how we
laughed around the tree, yeah we
laughed so hard
we laughed so hard
when he said goodnight
goodnight, Governor
 
one more surprise left
I don’t think she’ll take it in stride
but she will hold it
with lines stretched like
poison ivy vines
a political smile
 
it's peculiar the way he disappeared
