Lyrics
to-do lists on a long yellow legal pad
blue windsor knots framed by basic black
resplendent tables
great forests of paper plates
carrying the weight of the world
saps every ounce of your strength

in training to run a marathon
miles and miles and miles
with your sunday shoes on
in training to run a marathon
miles and miles and miles
with your dress shoes on

but all the recurring dreams
will increase and then peter out and cease
tears do evaporate
but oh so slowly like p___ on toilet seat

in training to run a marathon
miles and miles and miles
with your sunday shoes on
in training to run a marathon
miles and miles and miles
with your dress shoes on
