    What a sleight of hand you have.
    I never thought it true.
    And here you speak manipulations
    in the menacing bar room.
    But we all laugh.
    Yeah, we have jokes.
    And we are weary of the soup.
    Though, still I sip,
    when I should stop,
    until no longer can I move.

    "Are you ok? Are you ok?"
    No I'm not. No I'm not.
    Behind all of the "Ha Ha Ha"s,
    two magicians and a prop.

    What a sleight of hand you have.
    I never thought it through.
    And in your arms I'd suffocate,
    but that tightness has turned loose.
    "Come gather round. Come get a view.
    My trick's not up my sleeves.
    It hides in all the words I use,
    the cries, the sweet nothings."
    But you laugh.
    Yeah, you have jokes.
    And you live in making fools.
    For, I still ache,
    and still I want
    what I will always lose.

    "It's ok. It's ok."
    No it's not. No it's not.
    Here we drink and here we stay.
    Two magicians and a prop.

      I liked it, it seemed lyrical; is it a song? The humdrum bar room culture captured in its sad hopeful evanescence. The only thing I have to say is don't change it.
