It's farther than you would ever want to go.


Sitting out in the lobby
He is talking lots of smack
He says bad things about my mom
And then punches me in the back
Later on he laughs at me
Calls me stupid and ugly
I pretend that I don't care
and I pretend that he's not there
He called my best friend Sally fat
but he didn't know that she'd fight back
She slapped him then across the face
Then warned him that she'd use her mace
He didn't care and still grabbed her
And that's when I just sort of snapped
I grabbed him by his shirt collar
Pinned him down and told him that
"I will go farther than you. I will go farther than you."
Five years later at a bar
Playing pool, a drink or two
He comes in with his posse
I say "why, how do you do?"
He says "don't get smart with me"
And says he will kick my butt
I say "now take it easy"
and "I didn't mean anything by it."
Later in the parking lot
He comes up to me very drunk
He is talking lots of trash
He then punches me in the back
Later on while he's in jail
I decide to visit him
It may have been sort of mean
I just wanted to remind him that
"I will go farther than you. I will go farther than you."
