Warning, the room begins to become dark, the voices in your head scream out, “Flee! Flea? I don’t know, just get out, this doesn’t feel right!!!”

But too late, the doors are closed, welcome to the show, get comfy!

THE WORDS ON THE SCREEN –

Sex dolls,
In their pantyhose,
Talking about new age shit,
Sex sells,
But then,
So do atom bombs.

Lies!
Falsehoods!
Demons in the rum!!

The choir begins to sing,
Amen,
Thank God,
Your lover is imaginary,
But the love is real,
You tell your friends,
You’re okay,
You’re alright,
Where’s the alcohol?

Jimmy’s on the roof,
Looking down,
Should he jump,
He thinks to himself!
It’s a long way down,
To that street below.

Wine, oh giver of life,
Taker of memories,
Leave not me,
Here,
Wasted,
Take me into your sweet embrace,
Good night…
