Been here long enough now : I’m fighting the effect
Through many sunsets, dancing bones, gargling architects
A night that’s old, a floor that’s floating
I’d like to make a bet
That you will drag me to your room
My bloody bride
And get me bleeding for the pill
The precious pill — So switch it off now
Switch it off now, and let me sleep
Switch it off now; I’m sick of counting sheep
Switch it off now … I’m down here on my knees, saying please

The needle is a lady, and a lady needs respect
With trembling hands, she feels uneasy, she’s liable to fret
And then to punish; then to tease
She’d strip you, shoot you in the knees
But she will never ever leave
Switch it off now; let me sleep
Switch it off now; I said I’m sick of counting sheep
Switch it off now : I’m down here on my knees 
I’m saying please
Please …

“[My art] starts with Ludwig the Second of Bavaria meeting Woolworths and Barnum and Bailey over dinner with Louis the 14th in drag [;] then it just spirals out from there.  I’m constructing a new mythology from the shards of the universe.”
