"It’s nothing but time and a face that you lose; I chose to feel it and you couldn’t chose. I’ll write you a postcard, I’ll send you the news From a house down the road from real love…"
"Be nice to me, i’ll make you one of my disciples…"
"Sometimes at night I dream of the most terrible things. I take a hammer and I creep out of bed And I raise it high and I smash your head; Fibular and tubular and ribs and cages, too. In fact, while I’m here, I’ll smash the whole of you. But skeleton, you are my friend And I could never bring your life to an end…"
"In a trance in France I learned to dance And got me a piece of tail. They put my body in a hotel lobby And my soul in a neon jail. Big deal; You’re gonna be a big, big deal. Trained seals are always a real big deal…"
"It is a great feeling to know that from a window, I can go to books, to cans of beer, to past loves, And from these, gather enough dream to sneak out a back door."
“When you develop an infatuation for someone you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly the person for you. It doesn’t need to be a good reason. Taking photographs of the night sky, for example. Now, in the long run, that’s just the kind of dumb, irritating habit that would cause you to split up. But in the haze of infatuation, it’s just what you’ve been searching for all these years.”
"We start off with high hopes, then we bottle it. We realize that we’re all going to die, without really finding out the big answers. We develop all those long-winded ideas which just interpret the reality of our lives in different ways, without really extending our body of worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short disappointing life; and then we die. We fill up our lives with shite, things like careers and relationships to delude ourselves that it isn’t all totally pointless."
"So lit up, alright; I try to untie manhattan…"
"When there’s trouble I don’t like running, but I’m afraid I got more in common with who I was, than who I am becoming."
"I lay in bed and watched moments break into phenomenal particles of panic and could actually see the divine crack of God’s ass as he completely turned his back on me."
