Don't you know that I am connected to you? Don't you know that I am trying to pump blood to you, that this is for you, that I hate you people, so many of you motherfuckers-- When you sleep I want you never to wake up, so many of you I just want you to fucking sleep it away because I only want you to run under with me on this sand like Indians, if you're going to fucking sleep all day fuck you motherfuckers oh when you're all sleeping so many sleeping I am somewhere on some stupid rickety scaffolding and I'm trying to get your stupid fucking attention I've been trying to show you this, just been trying to show you this-- What the fuck does it take to show you motherfuckers, what does it fucking take what do you want how much do you want because I am willing and I'll stand before you and I'll raise my arms and give you my chest and throat and wait, and I've been so old for so long, for you, for you, I want it fast and right through me-- Oh do it, do it, you motherfuckers, do it do it you fuckers finally, finally, finally.
