I'm a peaceful man
I'm a peaceful man
but you ain't saying nothin' I'm feeling
but I ain't feelin' you
but A beggar can't be a chooser

Dajjal gave african-americans Crack
and white americans Prozac
I know that
Jesse Helms is really Oswald Pohl
and Bob Dole leads Coal Control
and Swiss banks
are an ol' faithfull laundromat
for the likes of Helmut Kohl
(naah) beer, pin-ball and jazzy soul
relax and enjoy a passive bowl
watch your step and mind that massive hole
I'm the man behind that Grassy Knoll
to really find a classy role
is what every actor dream
How can an equation of one factor seem
attractive like tractor beam
opinions are like assholes
everybody's got one

Grown men worry about
other things like receding hairlines
I'm smugglin' illegal Xylitol
on Singapore Airlines
I warm my hands
on top of a burning pile of
785,000 printed copies of "Howl"
so, this is what freedom of speech
soaked in gasoline smells like
the stench is foul
"a Pale Rider shall appear
when you hear the hoot of a Horned Owl"
the only political movement
I sense right now is in my bowel
nowhere close to '68
I feel stronger kinship with the Spirit of '69
cropped heads and heavy boots
Fred Perry kicks behinds
my lackies fix me lines
but I certainly don't snort them
now, thanks to Father Metro
I don't burn microphones
I support them

And finally faith steps in
and sees you through
the Lone Spectator screams "yoo-hoo"
she said I dreamt of
smaller things when I was little
well, my dreams grew too - as I got older
another 88 DAYS to carry this
boulder around on my shoulders
and then I'm free to do whatever I please
but, until then I see
25,000 warheads pointed right at me

I don't wanna be
a big baller, shot caller
I wanna be Gustav Mahler
dispite my uncontrollable obsession
with mammary glands

I see glamrock bands turn to goths
in front of camera stands
injected with truth serum
I scare 'em as I testify:
"all I wanted all along was to do
cover-songs by Procol Harum"

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Taylor Swift
I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
