I s’pose…

did’ya ever wonder why people never talk to ya…don’t return phone calls…avoid ya in public places…did’ya ever wonder ’bout that…why it is people don’t look ya in the eye when you speak to ’em…why they just get up and walk away from ya at a swift pace…like they just seen a ghost or somethin’…some kinda spook from way back…you remind ’em of somethin’…somethin’ that affected ’em long long ago…could been ‘fore ya was born…might’ve been an abusive parent or mean old grand dad…maybe a grade school bully that beat ’em up every day and took their lunch money…a boy who broke their hearts…just somethin’ ’bout ya…don’t know what it is…but…it’s scarey to people…they look at ya and run…some kinda Frankenstein monster…half human half beast…placed on earth to just roam ’round and frighten people…you ever think ’bout that…why that is…

your daddy was that way…people used to run from him…he was smaller than you…only five ten…but…he weighed three hundred pounds…just this big fat man walkin’ down the street…eatin’ candy bars…hot dogs…was always eatin’ somethin’…and he had a real serious look on his face…the kinda look that made people think twice…is he crazy or just plain mean…that’s what people thought…that’s what they think ’bout you…

and I wish I could tell ya differently…wish I could tell ya that people looked forward to seein’ ya…wanted to make your acquaintance…but that’s not the case now is it…

here I am talkin’ to ya…in this room…just the two of us…and you’re not sayin’ a word…sittin’ there all quiet…now you’re the one that’s scared…maybe you been afraid all your life…have ya…you can tell me…

what made ya pull that trigger…you had the money…that poor boy behind the counter…he’s got a family ya know…workin’ on Christmas day…killed over what…a pack of Camels and a little dough…I seen the whole thing on the video tape…I see the unreal on video tape all the time…show up at crime scenes with blood everywhere…brains splattered on a wall…this is nothin’ new…

and does it bother me…I s’pose…
