    If given the chance he will do it
    No need for further delay
    He’s looking for a new book to read
    Or a brand new game to play
    He’s been walking the straight and narrow
    He neither deviates nor strays
    He knows the meaning of devoted
    And he’s done well to obey

    But, there are needs burning within him
    Needs that aren’t being met
    Now, it only gets warmer, hotter
    His head is beaded with sweat
    He has worked on his current setting
    He’s tried to get it in check
    But, his efforts seem to be in vain
    If he wants he must go get…

    Keeping in mind he’s tried this before
    His conscious was just too strong
    He put himself right into harms way
    Yet, he could still do no wrong
    Although, many days are tedious
    Although, many nights are long
    Somehow he maintains fidelity
    Keep whining the same old songs

    But, he is tired of grumbling
    His throat is getting too dry
    There are alternatives to pursue
    Many delights to his eyes
    He’s freeing his libido tonight
    He’s going to let him fly
    And when he decides to come back home
    He wants no on asking him why

    Seems sort of like a rolling stone, without a permanent home, sounds deep to me. Flow on.

    (whoa...)

    sometimes, no matter how hard you try to restrain
    if circumstances don't improve and no one is working
    with you to solve the division...no book, or game
    will replace the true needs, we all have as human...
    loving beings...and if we were the catalyst for that
    freedom of flyte...def' can't complain or ask why...

    Cleverly & masterfully written...

    Great read! :wink:
