Evil Twin (Afternoon Version)
Evil Twin (Afternoon Version)

My evil twin, bad weather friend
He always wants to start when I want to begin
It scares me so, like I scare myself
With that book of Nostradamus high up on my self
Playing hangman till the morning light
Doing donuts on the neighbors’ lawn
Then sleep all through the day, get up and start again
I can hear some sirens somewhere, but I don’t know why
My evil twin, runs home again
Searchlights look for an alibi, but I’ll be home by then
Here he comes again, my evil twin
My friends have seen him hiding underneath my skin
Who cut the arm off the voodoo doll,
That resembles a republican president from long ago
I ‘d hate to see you leave
Cause I have grown so grateful for
The blame you save me from
My evil twin, bad weather friend
I know some day I’ll meet him but I don’t know where or when.
