lyrics

A simple thing can become complex
Love’s greedy tumescense
He’s got a mantra: California
He’s the president of Livonia

A copulation of ideas
He doesn’t want to know how it feels
To be headless, to be aimless
To have emotions about abortion

He’ll ask her, or maybe he should tell
It seems that she might listen, who could tell?
But he won’t inform her
That everytime he looks at her he sees the future and it’s bound in leather

He’ll ask her, or maybe he should tell
It seems that she might listen, who could tell?
But he won’t inform her
That everytime he looks at her he sees he sees his mother and he wants to stab her

He says later
I’ll see ya later
Good luck woman
I’m a masturbator
