Two People

Think you're pretty fancy, do you?
In your fake red curls and purple pants
Golden vest and blonde in the flannel...
Who do you become
                    When you close the door at night?
Yes, I'm talking to you...
                     You just don't know it.
Think the world revolves around you
But who would notice if you disappeared?
Who will mourn you when you die?
Think you're an angel, do you?
When the Christian God calls, will you rise?
Or will you come back as an ant
                  On the pavement
Which I step on
Never knowing it was you.
