I'd lose my head if it weren't screwed on, that's a saying, aint it? I've been a bit confused, trying to choose my words as best as they is gonna fit. Yeah, just as much of it is in the meditation as in the flick of the wrists. So when I get paralyzed by the white noise, I'll remember what she said. With a half cocked grin, "Can you hear nothing?" "It is all that is." At least that is something. You could have done a whole lot worse with picking your words, nah, you hit the nail on the head. Why do I despair my darling when it's as simple as we want it to be? Cause there is a faint flickering flame of evil that sparks in my thoughts, I cannot turn it off. There is a pale sickle swinging over our dreaming heads. When the clock strikes no time, that's as close to god as I can ever be. At least that is something. Yeah, what you get from it is less about the translation than the will to perceive it.
