Love is a word that sings like a virgin
in low-cut jeans, in low-key mind,
sucking at a lollipop lollipop oh lolli lolli lolli,
looking for messages in bottles of cheap wine.
I, on the other hand, am vinyl chloride,
lab-made illusion, feeding on white.
I am another north – I invented my own kind of cold.
I am a contempt warrant – I pronounce you dick by the phone.
I have deviance dispensers in my heart
and never suck at a lollipop lollipop oh lolli lolli lolli.
So let’s just fuck.
