Tiger Lillies

You think your better then this
But your flowers ain't gonna grow
Clearly, you hold your can at a steady angle
But if you look inside theres no flow

You really shouldn't assume things
Tiger lilies blossom already withered
And the sun beating down is just a really bright light bulb
And the snake of eden has already slithered

You think you are wanted by everyone
But if you look at yourself, your like the excess nectar discarded by the bee
Like the fly that begs for mercy in front of the eight legged fiend
Like the acorn impossible to reach, at the top of the tree.
