And now it looks to me like she’s about to leave
But as she passes she leans close and says:
My boy you got to keep that chin up
I’m gonna come back here next week for now
Just take my telephone number
Just remember what I told you

I told you how long we’ve got
All the time in the world
I’ve got a thing for you
You’ve got a thing for me

I never felt more alive than riding shotgun
In Klein’s green 5, until the cops pulled guns
And I tried to smoke weed to give me the fix I need
(What the game did to my pulse) with no results
And you can treat your nose and still won’t come close
The game is a lightbulb with eleventy-million volts
And I’m just a moth addicted to the floss
The doors lift from the floor and the tops come off
By any means necessary, whatever the cost
Even if it means lives is lost
And I can’t explain why I just love to get high
Drink, “life!” smoke the blueberry sky, blink twice
I’m in the blueberry 5, you blink three times
I may not even be alive
I mean even James Dean couldn’t escape the allure
Dying young, leaving a good-lookin corpse, of course

The older he gets, the easier it becomes to convince him to stay still for Father/Son portraits.

“…the opening ceremony may have been too British for some tastes, but who cares? We paid for it.
I’ve accustomed myself to loathing so many things about this rain-soaked dime of a country – its meanness, racism, imperial shame, Eton mess of a government and mediocre royals. Boyle reminded me of a Britain with a prouder history (public health services, killer music, birthplace of the industrial revolution, etc.) and a more hopeful future – and that vision moved me to tears.”
