Borneo I was so bored with my old life I was so bored with decent odds My new roommate left her debit card Some sort of test for me. It's too hard Try to run an errand. Nervous sweat I rush back home and if I win I'll give her half I bet Online casino in the caymans Legal disclaimer writ for layman's I moved back into new canaan Babysit my sister's kids; its rainin' They fuss a bit while I put them to bed And grumpy, sitting on the couch, I get it in my head Take metro north. A silver candlestick To aquaduct on lirr. Pick I was so bored with my new life I felt like I knew all the odds I bet 'gainst myself I wouldn't wager My boyfriend's mother's mansion (nothing major) I stole the deed one night when she was drunk I drove onto the reservation with it in my trunk Sensors beep the threshold when I crossed it Thirty thousand marker soon I lost it Baltimore inner harbor (sports) zone Being courted. He's talking on his cell phone "let me tell you why I think I love her She knows you always take the bye week dome home team to cover." Go up to pimlico and I choose It's no fun if it's fine when you lose I was so tired with all the angles I was so bored with losin' easy So I gambled on going further a-field So I flew to sydney and then to bali and then to jakarta And called on my step-father's ex-business partner Major timmy sastrosatomo And he set me up as a silver smith/batik dabber In a house once owned by the princes of mataran. And he told me all his troubles We bribed a cfo at semen cibinong To get them to buy a 40% stake And we got a 5 million dollar order from nieman marcus, Which we filled about 10% But I did sell them my children's book Which I said was a south sumatran Folk tale--which went like this: I played cards for seven days straight, Was up $47 dollars late Evening as the sun went down I saw The ace of diamonds up his sleeve--black velvet on his paw. I fold, say goodbye politely. They bark, you don't get off that lightly I dreamed of a casino way up in the hills of borneo Where I lost with the giant flying squirrels and orangutans and great Morman butterflies all day long. 'Til the bulldozers turned us into whole fruit fruit bar sticks and China markers
