I spoke with philosophers

who felt that
to draw out the span
of a man's life
was to draw out
the agony of his dying
and multiply
the number of his deaths.
- Borges (The Immortals)

Spend any amount of time around people,

you get your heart broke.
Treachery, hypocrisy. Promise of love.
Look into the mouth of a person,
and you'll find lies
wriggling there like maggots
waiting to grow wings.
The world has gone mad.
A man could kill
from sunup to sunset,
and still his work
would never be done.
(Ernie Dell, CSI - 7x10 - Loco Motives)

"Everything we call real

is made of things that
cannot be regarded as real."

"Once I had a love

and it was divine
Soon found out
I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing
but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust,
love's gone behind"

"Lollipop Lollipop

Oh Lolli Lolli Lolli...

Call my baby Lollipop
Tell you why
'Cause he's sweeter than an apple pie
And when he does his shaky rockin' dance
Man I haven't got a chance
I call him

Crazy way he thrills-a me
Tell you why
Just like a lightning from the sky
He loves to kiss me
'Till I can't see straight
GEE, my Lollipop is great!
I call him..."

"The bird struggles

to get out of the egg.
The egg is the world.
Whoever is born
must destroy a world.
The bird flies to God.
The name of God is Abraxas."
- Hermann Hesse, Demian
