Why is everyone crazy?
The River Phoenix doppelgänger nodding along to music on his Nokia touch screen.

The skinny bearded Asian boys, stylish and menacing. Straight out of a high speed chase movie screen.

In Jersey City, the old movie theater without air conditioning but with an animated, twirling organ. On Fridays. With friends. And $1 popcorn. Don't tell about the beers.

A Hurricane. A bomb. A flood. A fire.
The memories are turning into surveys.
We will complete your form, your message, and your groceries. It's automated and friendly. It's satisfactorily professional. And endearing. Bringing us together for short term unions.

Help us. We don't believe anymore. And the believers don't really believe. Something. A shake of River's head and chapped lips.

We're back. For now. For here. Forever.

I'm finally happy here
A sedated monster
But not too far from you

I can still find you
And see you

The time may never come
When I peel back the thick skin
Uncovering my innocent feelings for you

And tell you that I meant it
When I cried into the blowing moon
Fastening the seat belts in cold and lonely parking lots
Wondering why I never had the strength
To fight the pleasure of experience

How the leaves turn drier before equinox
Every crinkle in my face replaces your memory
My hope for aftershocks is eroding
And now I will say some words

I loved you.

I want to be happier
Like those open bars
Cameras smiling

Look at our brand new jeans
Designed to deceive
Mocking the poor

Plastic colored sunglasses
Dead of day
We're over paid

Give me a chance to tell you
All about Eve
I hope I'll kill you

Someone rescue me
and throw me into
A vegan sweet shop

On a lonely hill
Self powered
In a snow storm

I want to breathe in the pines
Make my own coloring books
From natural causes

I scream in my head
1 ticket to hell
Synthetic stalking
My eyes are burning

And it's allowed
The paying man has a budget to plan
And it's okay, I just got paid
Time to buy another round
Of my favorite brew
The one I saw
Right next to the picture of you
The one I love
The one I want to hold
Licking my lips
Begging for more
It's alright because you're here
Looking at me with my beer

I have you in my hand
Talking at you from another land
There's so much more that could be true
But I'm still looking at this picture of you

Come at me Jesus, with your mighty hand
Strike me down to the nearest church
In this new world I will guide thee
Into a forum where you can speaketh the word
Like a turd
Just a word
And when they delete your account
Nobody will care
And you and me, honey, will meet again
On another site
With suns, moons, babies and liquor
And we'll be friends

I see you run through the gamet

I see you sitting in the tunnel
Ready to take off on your own

Into the fables of lore

You are on your own

We stand and gaze at the moment

We’re just keeping your seat warm

Waiting for the hope we can’t kill

It pays us too well

And so you must go on

While we believe otherwise

Chickens in our black shoes

Bullets in our hearts

Sometimes we will laugh like you

Sometimes we will not

And so you must go on

To official eternity

With your cufflinks gold

And your hair so bold

To the earth

To the sky

To the fire in your belly

White collar crimes a plenty

Be gone

Be gone

Be gone to the window

Waiting down below

A surrendering ship is circling

With your wife and children as captains

Will you walk the plank?

Take another avenue

And we’ll see you again

At the next trade show

Dusted off and miraculously

Recovered and red

Otherwise you would be dead

And so you must go on your own

Through these dangers

Through these dollars and souls

An incredible slavery

When you’re gone

And you’ll leave

We will be honored to know you

Through your haunted dreams

So please

Keep in touch

The heart drops with every load
A surcharge of no impact
It's cautious and timid and very

I wait for you on the line
Are you calling?

I'm still here
But I'm calling
and I'm still here
In this madness
Surreal madness

I've given everything to you
And my truths are telling
Come watch as I dangle
Like fruits on the table

So savor
But please come
My web host of lusting
This severance is what counts
My Harley
My Hunting
This cryptic way of telling me you're boring and cultured

I will not be the last to know
I'm swimming in circles
And you gave me the fins to feel

I'm drifting over time
In a white hot desert cooled by midnight skies
I'm standing and chilled on a dune
Waiting for you in this tension
I cannot recall the agreement
But if this is the right time
I will implode and make up for all your trouble

I love you
I do
If this was to be so easy
I would almost have it almost

Tonight I come clean and write out a list
Because you both know my name

We are both the same and we are both
kidding ourselves

We are a picture book and we are both
to blame

I want nothing more than to be myself
I want nothing more than to reset

If time is a living beast we must fall in love with
We must be bitterly disappointed
And surprisingly joyous
And oblivious

For something so sweet, tangy and true
I'm sorry, but I can not offer this to you

My mind is made up
My heart is in gear

I choose you, Pikachu.
