lyrics

Not everybody has the luxury of such misery, oh, misery, no. Not everybody has the luxury, but I have been so blessed, oh. Weeping in supermarkets, wailing in subway cars, breaking down at the laundromat, losing hope between meals. Like love, reason only cheapens it. This faith, love would only weaken it. I forget everything I’ve done unless it stares me in the face like a stranger in my house. I don’t learn from my mistakes, for I regret nothing more than anything else. Like love, reason only cheapens it. This faith, love would only weaken it. I’ve got time for killing, space for moping, and dirty money to burn. I don’t know from trouble baby, but I’m willing to learn.

What can we do when every blessing is a curse? What can we do?

Let’s make things worse.

Not everybody has the luxury to claim validity for such stupidity and insipidity. Oh no. Not everybody has the luxury, but I have been so blessed. Oh yes.

A lonely dog left on earth after the rapture, and the gradual opening of his third eye for the first time. ... more
