  1. Life is Full of Metaphors

From the album Pretty Good Therapy

It's true. Look around :)

Lyrics

I got a dog, he ain't real smart
but he wiggles when he wags his tail, yeah he's a real sweetheart
Dumb dog tried to hump me, when I was down on the floor
Life is full, of metaphors
(the point there is that when your dealin with "stupid", DO NOT get down on their level!)

Big dog fell in love with a cute little mutt
everytime she walks by she does this cute little strut
if he gets to close she gives him "what for"
Life is full, of metaphors
(you know what they say, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is)

if you got your eyes open then I think you'll see
That the truth is all revealed so cleverly
I've got a glass menagerie, but it just came crashin down to the floor!
Life is full, of metaphors

I went out, to try and meet some girls
to a honktonk, I thought I give it a whirl
all them 8s and 9s, was out there struttin on the floor
I went over to the bar and I met a 4
(truth is, she looked just as good as them other girls, just not all painted up)

I could see how I could be her man
but she had a ring there on her left hand
she said "look for a windah hoss, when ya see a closed door"
she said "Life is full, of metaphors"
(I confess, I was tempted, but gotta draw a line somewhere)

I made it clear, that it was just no deal
cuz I don't plow, in another man's field
She said "that's good hoss - cuz this ring's a fake"
I just wear it down here to sort out the spiders and snakes!
(Yeah, she said that was a good answer! Put me right to the front of the line)

if you got your eyes open then I think you'll see
That the truth is all revealed so cleverly
there's a streetcar named desire it just pulled up to my front door
Life is full, of metaphors
