You're going through phases -
are you some kind of man
or a moon?
Either way, these here boots
they're gonna walk
all over you
It's all true, isn't it?
There's no real altruism, kid
It's just a new set of clothes
on the same old selfishness
- cold piss!

Out, walking the street
looking for these
alleged elegant truths
It's just me
lonely me
and the other relevant dudes
arrogant enough to believe
this is developing news
I exist just as a fish
stuck with the pelican blues
- hot deuce!

Here it goes again
I hear you took it to another level
Here it goes again

Tonight I'm crying for a baby
who's never going to be born
my authentic self was aborted
at the age of four

You know I'll always be a junkie
you see me spread across the floor
1-2-3-4-5-6-7 angels
don't come around no more

But I'm not gonna cry
I'm not gonna cry
I'm not gonna cry
thinkin' bout that baby
But I'm gonna die
die if I don't try
try to bring that man to life

But what of the classic contest,
Content versus Context?
They have a fight -
Context wins
Con men contact Content's next of kin,
saying “I'm looking for your least-feminine lesbian
we're gonna pump her so full of bovine estrogen
she won't be masculine, I'm high on mescaline
but no one knows, 'cause I shit on some Mexicans”
- Hot deuce!

    General Comment1-2-3-4-5-6-7 angels, kind of a subtle nod to the six dark winged devils from the monitor? maybe.

    General CommentI'm not sure if the last paragraph means much, but I like it it a lot.
