I Could Be That Guy

Les Marcott-Scene4 Magazine

Les Marcott

 

I could be that guy....
The guy who's homeless and lives under a highway bridge
Or maybe the guy who lives a step above and lives out of his battered truck
Or may living large and has a membership at Gold's Gym just to enjoy the shower privileges
Yea, I could be that guy

I could be that guy...
The guy who howls at the moon, who tilts at windmills
Or battles the demons inside his head
The one who refuses help...as if help were available
Yea, I could be that guy

I could be that guy...
Who walks from one last highway to the next
From one Twilight Zone episode to the next
From one never-ending sorrow to the next
Yea, I could be that guy

I could be that guy...
Who pisses it all away in the blink of an eye
Who understands that "from dust you were made and dust you shall return
Who understands that with the passage of time I can see all your wounds and all your scars
Yea, I could be that guy

I could be that guy...
Who stares at Madame Sosostris and her wicked deck of cards as if I were staring at the apocalypse
Who jumps off the bridge over Troubled Water
Who imbibed a big gulp of that salty ocean water, who sleeps with the fishes
Yea, I could be that guy

I could be that guy...
I'm so close...and you are too
