Me every morning
let’s sail in this sea of charms
let’s drown underneath the stars
let’s drink with our weapons in our hands
let’s sleep in this trance
Everybody should do in their lifetime,
Sometime, two things.
One, is to consider death.
To observe skulls and skeletons
And to wonder what it would be like to go to sleep, and to never wake up, ever.
That is the most- is a very gloomy thing for contemplation.
But it’s like manure,
Just as manure fertilizes the plants and so on.
So as the contemplation of death, and the acceptance of death
Is very highly generative of creative life.
You get wonderful things out of that.

Incubus | Make Yourself
If you let them make you
They’ll make you papier-mâché
At a distance you’re strong until the wind comes
Then you crumble and blow away
If you let them fuck you
There will be no foreplay
But rest-assured they’ll screw you complete
'til your ass is blue and gray
You should only make amends with you
If only for better health
But if you really want to live
Why not try and make yourself?
