He really was
The last great nobody, undertoned and devastatingly precise
Nonetheless, heavily intent on only doing what is oh so right
No such show-pony going on here, you can be rest-assured of that
So near yet so gaddamn far
You needed to be right up there on a par for this to ever set absolute sail
Pale in significance an’t gonna cut the mustard no-more
As much as cut yourself off and it is you who turns out rather soft
Underbelly, feet cemented rather astonishingly in jelly
When will she ever so much as learn
Continue on as you are because, seemingly, he has already turned the other cheek
For this will always be the only way he ever gets to speak
