Don’t you ever live for the moment? Don’t you let it go Hand it to you over and over, hand you an overdose Don’t you ever ever tell life to fuck off and leave you alone Fall into an orbit around your morbid, hallelucinate your despair Halleluoooohh hallelucinate halleoooooh Abra cadaver how you so dapper? Holy rolling ghost Roll into our moments of weakness, holding out some truths Settle into our cavernous self hatred, that’s what you’re here to do Halleluoooohh hallelucinate halleoooooh Halleluoooohh hallelucinate halleoooooh Abra cadaver how you so dapper? Holy rolling ghost Settle into our cavernous self hatred, that’s what you’re here to do You had all night You had your whole life You were never ever in control ooooh Stand by our whole lives Wait for it to to arrive We were never ever in control ooohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

Lyrics excerpted from Virginia Woolf's 1928 publication "A Room of One's Own" Do not start do not blush Let us admit in the privacy A great mind is androgynous A great mind is ohhh Woman manly, man womanly, woman manly ohh
