My brother, he was a painter
He dipped his brush in whey
And when he looked at himself in the mirror

At the edge of the bridge she looked down at the water

Where the leaves fell apart,
Where he never broke her heart
A still life in black, a means to an end

Now he's working the pole with his capital d
The alphabet never made much sense to me
How it ends with a y and begins with a c
It's always the same with crazy

A means to an end
