i was asked do i ever feel like an alien.
like do i ever get the feeling i was dropped off from a space ship a long time ago
and thats why i think differnt, look different
i say we dont answer those sorts of questions from where im at
they asked where you from
i said the suburbs.
its a place where we have had the internet for quite a while.
we’re not afraid of the things you earth people are afraid of.
likewise we are terrified of things you dont seem to have any concern about.
art is nothing to be afraid of, for example.
guns though. yikes.
theres a cure song called six different ways.
it came out in 1985.
‘this is stranger than i ever thought’
i had my first apartment. i shared a room with a guy who looked like art garfunkel.
a young art garfunkel.
he had a drawer of tapes that he recorded from all these albums.
it was stranger than i ever thought.
i was dating a girl who was a year older than me.
she wore perfume and pearls.
she convinced me to throw out my shoebox of love letters from my high school girlfriend.
then she broke up with me because i wouldnt have sex with her.
from my planet you got to know the girl a little first.
crazy idea, i know.
after all these years i do not forget her name: jennifer.
we made out to art’s frank sinatra tapes. and it was steamy.
and i could see how she would want more.
but she had more lipstick on than robert smith.
and the perfume seemed fake and im sure the pearls were.
planet suburbs kept it real even back then.
