Foregone Conclusion
(Written by Ray Harris ©2012 SOCAN)

You're the queen of broken hearts -
my duchess of despair,
It's your way or not at all -
and you really believe that's fair,
Your reign of terror's come to an end -
much to your surprise,
Yet you still think that you can plot - the path of my demise.

It's your foregone conclusion that I'll drink,
It's a foregone conclusion, that's what you think,
I'd really like to be the one that shatters your illusion,
Even if it's true, to hell with you
And your foregone conclusion.

It's survival of the fittest - versus the golden rule,
Does that make me a hypocrite, a victim ,or a fool?
A conundrum of the classic kind - a real Catch 22,
I'll be damned if I don't - and you'll damn me if I do.

It's your foregone conclusion that I'll drink,
It's a foregone conclusion, that's what you think,
I'd really like to be the one that shatters your illusion,
Even if it's true, to hell with you
And your foregone conclusion.

I wish the hell I could be the one that shatters your illusion,
Even if it's true, here's to you
And your foregone conclusion.
