lyrics

You don’t judge character by how well you treat your equals, but those beneath you
Hardness isn’t judged by beating others, but by surviving beatings to you

Steve Ditko takes a card and colours one black half… but there should be an in between…
The left believe that everyone should be protected (even when that means that individuals can’t have millions)
The right believe that everyone should strive for riches (even when stepping on others, so they’re inherently wrong)
The theory of hurrah and boo…

If I could have one wish (as Madeleine Smith would be for J.E. Oliver)
I’d like to team up with a glamorous showgirl at Davenports Magic shop (Known to Karrel Fox and Jim Steinmeyer)
“Quelle splendide nichons” Cool as Lee Miller
Not for all the tea in China (or all the Nile in Carolina) would we want something else

Youngsters fall in love with ideals until they get something (I would advise you to get something if you can)
I’m not as hard as Geoff Senior’s angular lines or portrayal of motion
Cynics may have focus or be trapped in their barrels (or in a case like J. Bentham)
I read Sophie’s World in one weekend, to escape from real life (so I’ll never be Uber-man)
If I was as brave as Max Hasting’s Dad, I might suggest that David Hume’s my favourite one
Port please and a morsel of cheese, as I scan my books – there is a matter more brave, if I take a look
Why would he say that life is too full of things? (That’s euphoria not Nausea I’m thinking)
What I meant by that Sophie’s World comment was really true (but then I had nothing else to do)
Mauvais foi is the thing to avoid and of that I’m sure (I’d be as good as Mindy on the ocean floor)
She’s Princess Mindy to us, with her, “bag of all winds,” thing (what a labyrinth it is)
If you can stay friendly with ex-members then you’re doing fine, like the Dillinger Escape plan
