Happy Rhodes - Find Me (2007) - 06 - "Charlie"



Inspired by Robert Crumb's brother Charles.

Lyrics:

Charlie

I could have been Charlie
I could have been dead
Could have been hopeless
Put a hole in my head

There's a fine line between us
(Background: I could have been Charlie)
Charlie and me
(Background: Living on meds)
Soon to be forgotten
Or remembered as a freak

(Background: His was a madness I identify with)

I don't know who's scarier
(Background: I don't know who's scarier)
Him or me
(Background: Charlie is dead)
He's already gone there
I'm on the same family tree

'Cause Charlie had potential
(Background: Charlie had potential)
Just like me and you
(Background: Just like me and you)
Something in him misfired
(Background: Something in him misfired)
It could happen to me too
(Background: It could happen to me too)

(Background: His was a madness I identify with)
(Background: His was a madness I identify with)

I can see Charlie
(Background: I can see Charlie)
Sitting on his hands
(Background: Sitting on his hands)
Drowning in his chaos
(Background: Drowning in his chaos)
And formulating plans
(Background: Formulating plans)

If I had stayed that way
(Background: I could have been Charlie)
It would have been me
(Background: Living on meds)
Wishing for a handgun
Or a rope on a sturdy tree

When I wake up
(Background: Charlie had potential)
I'm just like him
He's got madness I can get with
There is a beauty
(Background...?)
in succumbing to fear
You get comfortable
in your limbo
I know

(Background: Charlie had potential)
(Background: Just like me and you)
(Background: Something in him misfired)
(Background: It could happen to me too)
