Artist :Ani Difranco
Album :Knuckledown
Title :

Manhole



Notablebut not the greatest

Stolen for me by the latest

In a long line of thieves

And I'm just about to drop it

Down that manhole of memories

When I realize it doesn't bother me

Like love's mementos usually do

And I look up to see who's different here

The latest me or the latest you



Courseyou're the kind of guy who doesn't lie

He just doctors everything

Chooses some unassuming finger

And quietly moves his wedding ring

Who rewrites his autobiography

For any pretty girl who'll sing

But you can't fool the queenbaby

Cuz I married the king



And maybe it was I who betrayed his majesty

With no opposite reality

Like a puddle with no reflection

Of the sky or the trees

But after my dreaded beheading

I tied that sucker back on with a string

And I guess I'm pretty different now

Considering



I kissed you on the street that night

On the far side of four

But I didn't like the taste

In my mouth or yours

And ignoring the persona you wore for my benefit

For once I had the balls to call it

Just call it

But a lesson must be lived

In order to be learned

And the clarity to see and stop this now

That is what I've earned



And maybe it was I who betrayed his majesty

With no opposite reality

Like a puddle with no reflection

Of the sky or the trees

But after my dreaded beheading

I tied that sucker back on with a string

And I guess I'm pretty different now

Considering



I'm holding here a book

Notablebut not the greatest

Stolen for me by the latest

In a long line of thieves

And I'm just about to drop it

Down that manhole of memories

When I realize it doesn't bother me

And heartache not so dire

Cuz I looked up to see integrity

Finally won over desire
