Money is for spending
why bother pretending
your body’s not for feeling.
give it something good.

Bon bons are for eating
As long as he is treating.
Satisfaction is too fleeting
to do what you should.

I’ve got illusions.
I’m gonna lose them (use them)
That’s what they’re there for.

So the way out of naivete’s not always respectable.
I’ve got to be here all flesh and blood and three-dimensional.
I found the way out my mama’s belly without pretention (just like you….)
So gimme gimme gimme gimme the best of these dimensions.

Wild oats are for sowing.
Secrets are for knowing.
Just climb into a cab, and tell the man to drive.

Life is for the living.
Rules are for the breaking.
Your heart will do the same no matter how you try.

I’ve got illusions...


from An Awkward Time with The Debutante Hour, released March 15, 2012
