whiskey warmth in the belly
ah, what a good substitute
warmth of spirits for spiritual warmth
I think I will buy this
I think I want it
I’ll take it home. It will make me feel better.
it’s the latest. I’m back in style.
something to show, something to show
I’m saving up
a down payment
on that beauty beauty car!
then I can pay by the month too!
then, in six months
the thrill is gone
I feel funny
I feel anxious
and sort of doomed
hey, let’s go to the casino!
I’m only taking a hundred bucks with me
I’m not gonna use my bank card
come on man, everyone’s doing it
it’s a real trip
only lasts a couple of hours
you’ll be glad you did
in the evening of life
having navigated it all
we sit now in front of a blurting glow box
spoon feeding the same old, same old
The siren song of the neon God.
