The taxi ride

We meet and then you tell me all your news
Of everything you’ve done for several days
It seems there’s not a way I can refuse
To hear about your friend and what he says

You know the way to fix the current state
And everyone who disagrees is wrong
And now you tell me all about a mate
Who had the luck to write a winning song

For heaven’s sake when will it ever end?
The words emerge in streams without a pause
There’s nothing that I wish to comprehend
My views will never be the same as yours

I’m not too sure I want to be alive
Now PLEASE SHUT UP you’re only paid to drive!!!
