Flushed From The Bathroom Of Your Heart
Jack Clement words
Johnny Cash, music


From the backdoor of your life you swept me out dear
In the bread line of your dreams I lost my place
At the table of your love I got the brush off
At the Indianapolis of your heart I lost the race

Iíve been washed down the sink of your conscience
In the theater of your love I lost my part
And now you say youíve got me out of your conscience
Iíve been flushed from the bathroom of your heart

In the garbage disposal of you dreams Iíve been ground up dear
On the river of your plans Iím up the creek
Up the elevator of your future Iíve been shafted
On the calendar of your events Iím last week

Iíve been washed down the sink of your conscience
In the theater of your love I lost my part
And now you say youíve got me out of your conscience
Iíve been flushed from the bathroom of your heart
