Fair-weather Friends

Im a better person
Than the world deserves to have in it
And it might turn its back on me
And leave me all alone.
But Im a better person
Than the world deserves to have in it,
So come the thunder, come the rain,
Come the vengeance, come the wrath,
Come the misery, the pain;
I will write their epitaph.
Ill wallow in the apathy
Born of a perfect plan;
Explain it to their children best I can.

And my
Rainy-day Christian, fair-weather friends
Say
We used to think you beautiful,
But now we think youve changed.
You were a better person
Than this world deserved to have around,
You started off from sanity
And so its madness that youve found.

Im a better person
Than anyone will see in me:
I say what I feel and I feel
Nothing, nothing at all.
Yes, Im a better person
Than the world deserves to have in it,
So come the mocking, come the jibes,
Come the cruelty, come the shame,
Come envy engendered lies:
Ill forgive them all again
Because all Ill feel is nothing,
And Ill take it to heart,
And show them I was better from the start.

And my
Rainy-day Christian, fair-weather friends
Say
We used to think your sophistry
Was only harmless fun.
You were a better person
Than this world deserved to have around,
Agnosticism was better,
Because its heresy youve found.

Im a better person
Than the world deserves to have in it,
And Im a better person now
Ive thrown the lies away.
Im a better person now
Than the world deserves to have in it,
So say I love you, say I send
My best wishes while you sleep,
Say I miss you, say my friend,
Stay silent and only weep;
Ill thank you for your courtesy,
Ill wish you a good night,
And bless you from my fortress of the Right.

And my
Rainy-day Christian, fair-weather friends
Say
We all thought you were annoying,
We used to think you cruel,
We gave you far more friendship
Than your twisted heart could ever hold;
Now youre trapped in isolation,
Youre lonely and youre getting old.
