People! People!...Don't you see that mankind is a bag-lady...wandering city streets?...She wakes in dreams...communicates in screams...and speaks to herself when she's lonely...but if there's one thing that she must learn...she must learn to feed herself....She must learn to feed herself...We must learn to feed ourselves.
