I wrote it because it came in a gust, like a specter.

Too many people say we can do it

we will write tomorrow the words of today

we will sing the songs of self-deprecation

all the while we do nothing in our time

dreamers can't sing outside of their heads

Do you like it when I call you an alcoholic?

do YOU like it when I call you things like that?

I'm nuts? You go nuts too

Yes you are, so are you

You do it too, you guys are both nuts

Silly bands that never make it

comedians too afraid to stand up

all the while buildings fall and men die

women give birth to sonnets and death

Pilgrimage to the east, the south, the west, or north

take your feet step by step down the road

you are enticed but you are confused

If I'm nuts then so are you

if we are both nuts then so be it

but so long as I am what you say

then you are what I say, too
