Let’s get one thing straight—I never use imagery.
I’m not that kind of boy; I believe in honesty.
It’s an image with weight; it makes you circumvent

And if you try to examine it
And you take all the measurements
and read in between the lines
You’ll find out that you’re missing the point.
You shouldn’t ever judge an act of creation.
The myths that inflame our highly volatile brains.
The mystery of the act of attraction proves

I don’t care about morals
I don’t care about prudity
But here is the way it is
Resplendent in nudity:
I want you to use your brains,
Now what do you think about that?

Lazily beans aligns with the main screen thinks about the curves
Low low low
That's about as low
As a fellow ought to go
Everything's happenin' and everything's changing and every thing's going by
I don't know nothing that I can't remember and I can't exactly remember
Patiently patiently waiting to awe the carnivore of all time
My bird eats turkey for breakfast every day
Never asks for bacon, I know just what she'll say
