about

Maybe I was a jukebox in a past life
smashed by a punter with an ax to grind.
Now my slow-mo shrug thinks it's a gang sign.
Am I jaded enough? I can't decide.

In my mind I'm a shaman, the male Kim Deal.
Took a couple odd thoughts, made 'em real.
Now I'm lukewarm on the way things feel;
they say the scars will fade and the pain will heal,

but no!
A love story's just a tug boat
dragging you across a mountain
like Fitzcarraldo.
I've towed the line, so
I know the ropes.
Now I'm not one to blow smoke,
but life is no joke.

A hand job or a shoe shine:
stratifying chit chat and RSI.
I've spied with my third eye, now I'm blind.
So I'm driving back to Langley on the 495;

gonna sign on the dotted line. Lock me inside
a hyperbaric chamber ‘til the anger eats me alive.
It's fine, I do it all the time, I don't know why.
It's like suicide; you know you'll never know until you try...

but no!
I've done the math, and it sucks to be broke,
but studies show it's better than a punch in the nose.
Get what you're given and go home.
Life's not a bitch, it's a business; no joke.

Wait a minute – what about me?
A billion dollars is cool, but
what about free?
What about unmediated reality?
What about it?
I need timelines and a strategy.

Cause we get what we deserve,
dramatically,
when we get all amygdalic
and act programmatically.
You don't need a mask
to reenact a tragedy,
But abreaction has its consequences –
that's just gravity.

Hush ho!
The dowager of Hunderby left out in the snow!
Write what you dream about; doubt what you know.
Cope. Hope against hope.
The end comes fast, all punchline, no joke.
