I Want

If will could clean houses
mine would sparkle.
And if will could resurrect
I'd be surrounded by corpses.
If my will could make you love me
We'd be married by now.

If want could make me rich
I'd buy that dream car
And if want could make me beautiful
I wouldn't want you anymore.
If want could bring him back,
I'd spit in his face

If need always brought that needed,
I'd have my daddy back
If needing meant getting,
there'd be no need for prayer
If my needs were always met,
I would have no wants.

If action meant receiving,
maybe I'd get off my ass.
If doing meant finishing,
I'd be willing to start.
If will could end this,
I'd will the gun to my mouth.
