Long live whatever it is you're tryin' to say, cuz your children might understand it someday. I loveth thee for a flowery piece of the devil's prose. But you're wastin' our time if you're not for some hope and a joke. Oh man, you better be able to swim over the ocean like all the mother and brothers and sisters and misters of mercy. Long live whatever it is you're tryin' to say cuz your children might understand it someday.
