A Woman In Lingerie
There's something classically appealing about a good woman Dressed in different kinds of lingerie. Some like it so much, they have seperate pieces For any given day.
This Is Good Rock And Roll
The guitars are loud and proud and ballsy. The singer's dementia is some kind of palsy. The bass drum will kick and the rhythm will stroll. This is good rock and roll.
To me, television is a chore. It is a bore. It shows half a program, then makes you sift through adverts for more.
Seems theres always some kind of buzz To amuse yourself with. Some noise, or flashing bright thing A new toy
The last refuge of the solitary stooge The final placement where the faith belongs The last challenge fading the in fog My life; as it slips away
Closing up and clamming up in social situations. Walking into a party full of unknown faces. There could be a genius in there.
I'd Like To Go And Live In A Madhouse Fo...
Above all else The lessons I learned Are probably not much more insightful Than anyone else
The 'Miracle' of Christmas
It's not a miracle It's a cynical pagan-derived ritual Christmas was supposed to be descration of the Christ
Some metaphors are better for making a point than others. Some metaphors futhermore Are for ousting your former lovers. Few metaphors will get applause

That I call
The best one.
I'd like to see it put to good use.
Every man should be a creator
Every man should stop being a low
I see it time and time and time again.
Those who would look down upon me
Those who put status and worldiness
Above which that matters
To me that is
Keeping your soul pure
Feeding it unbiased knowledge
Letting it live in the most fun
