mighty calliope cycles inside of me. scifi psychiatry. rival sobriety. didactic diary, highlight entirely. ample anxiety, various varieties. we go 1, 2 cha cha cha 3, 4 tao dada 5, 6 incipient fix go exist, kids, get yr kicks. there's a god in confidence. but he's tall and ominous. competent in cognizance, spot-on in spotlessness. the prophetess is populist. monogamous esophagus. autonomous hypostasis. in alcoholics androgynous we go 1, 2 cha cha cha 3, 4 tao dada 5, 6 incipient fix go exist, kids, get yr kicks.

the smell is rancid, dancing ppl making dancing faces, places don't look different but i've been here before. now i'm stuck and the place is filled up w/ ppl i've fucked and ppl i should've fucked. it's all so loud and now i know w/o a doubt that if i can't make it out, i'll wake in makeup and pumps. picture me pressed against plexiglass in a ten gallon hat with Prince on my back. same mistake making sense. babies take baby steps. inside i'm sobbing, all this throbbing, all this pressing, and yr breasts confetti-sweating thru yr pinafore dress. loosen up, lunatic, losin it. the quick corruption of somebody's plus-one. picture me pressed against plexiglass in a ten gallon hat with Prince on my back. same mistake making sense. babies take baby steps.

i don't feel like there's really something wrong with me or, i don't know for sure, but i do feel the need to just tell you. so now you're in on it. i have made you my accomplice. you are complicit. you are in this with me. sometimes the quickest way out is down. you don't feel a thing, you don't make a sound. and maybe you should've done something. you could tell at least some of the time that i wasn't just kidding about all of this. i mean, all the signs were not only right there, they're right here. now. you're listening to it laughing. sometimes the quickest way out is down. you don't feel a thing, you don't make a sound. and everybody's drinking. everybody's drinking again.

i've had enough. i'm exhausted and you're exhausting. i've had enough, i'm exhausted and you're exhausting. i've had a blast but what exactly is this costing? my caustic wit and all these lines that i've been crossing have got me locked out of the fridge and i'm defrosting. my last resort is now this house that i've been haunting. and i've been thwarted but the trip was so rewarding. i'd share it with you but the thing wasn't recording. and all i got is memories that are distorting, my property involuntarily contorting, which forces me to sadly return to performing. an embarassing emotional outpouring that you'll be in the back somewhere busy ignoring. and i don't blame you even i think this is boring. but i'm intrigued by this revenge that you're exacting. and all the baggage that i'm haplessly unpacking, the information you're illegally extracting and keeping secret from the suits financial backing, which some hack writer is considering adapting. with my permission he can finally stop redacting. and i've been giving thought to getting back to acting. so keep me in mind when the time arrives for casting. let's make it happen, all these bridges need re-crossing and caution signs for the commotion we've been causing. but cross me out. i think i'm actually withdrawing. yeah count me out i'm exhausted and you're exhausting. i know the cast and crew all call me mister shouty. i know the cast and crew all call me mister shouty. i know the cast and crew all call me mister shouty, but this project wouldn't even exist without me.
