I took a taxi from L.A. to Venus in 1985
I was electromagnetically sucked back
into a party goin' on that night.
It was the glories of the 80s
Karma drawn up in lines
Silicone party barbies to the left
and Joan of Arcs to the right.
Noone feeling insecure we were
We all were gorge and famous
in our last lives
In the glories of the 80s
You said "the end is nothing to fear"
I said "Blow the end now baby
Who do I gotta shag to get outta here"
And then when it all seemed clear
Just then you go and disapear
Sure you're out there, orbiting around
glory of the 80's
Neil gaiman quote
Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in
"Do you know who I am" she said
"I'm the one who taps you on the shoulder when it's your time
Don't be afraid I promise that she will awake
Maybe I'm passing you by
Just passing you by girl
I'm passing you by
On my way
On my way
I'm just passing you by
But don't be confused
One day I'll be coming for you...
