From time to time, we
We're children
Carefree, lawless
Sure of our rights
Hands sticky with jam
On the sofa. . .

Since the morning
Our paws are of satin,
Wild eyes full of savageness
In the savannah night
Deriding the rage
Of someone who's stuck. . .

Oh, spleen, oh, reverie
Oh, spleen, oh, symphony
Oh, spleen, oh, memory!

Yes, sorry, sorry. . .
Ah, yes, forget it, let's move on. . .
Dressed as a handsome man, I've lost my youth
My ruffian's face
In light-grey wool. . .

Yes, from time to time. . .

    General CommentThe incredibly talented Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins) described this song as to how he would introduce himself personally, through a song. It seems a fit to me - from his wild youth, to now a 50+ man (Dressed as a handsome man, I've lost my youth) - his path has been an extreme life's journey which has left us a treasure trove of gorgeous music along that blazed path.
