Patti Smith – 25Th Floor lyrics

We explore the men's room.
We don't give a shit.
Ladies' lost electricity;
Take vows inside of it.

Desire to dance;
Too startled to try.
Wrap my legs 'round you,
Starting to fly.

Let's explore
Up there, up there, up there,
On the twenty-fifth floor.

Circle all around me,
Coming for the kill, kill, kill
Oh kill me baby
Like a kamikaze
Heading for a spill.
Oh but it's all spilt milk to me.

Desire to dance;
Too startled to try.
Wrap my legs 'round you,
Starting to fly.

Let's soar
Up there, up there, up there,
On the twenty-fifth floor.

We do not eat
Flower of creation.
We do not eat,
Eat anything at all.
Love is, love was, love is a manifestation.
I'm waiting for a contact to call.
Love's war. love's cruel.
Love's pretty, love's pretty cruel tonight.
I'm waiting here to refuel.
I'm gonna make contact tonight.
Love in my heart.
The night to exploit.
Twenty-five stories over detroit,
And there's more
Up there, up there, up there.

The transformation of waste

The transformation of waste is perhaps the oldest pre-occupation of man. man being the chosen alloy, he must be reconnectedЎєvia shit, at all cost. inherent with(in) us is the dream of the task

All must not be art. some art we must disintegrate.

In background:
(I feel it swirling around me
I feel it feeling no pain
I'm waiting above for you baby
I know that I'll see you up there
I'm floating in a door backward
On boundaries over this world
I'm waiting above in the sky, dear

High on rebellion
What I feel when I'm playing guitar is completely cold and crazy, like I don't owe nobody nothing and it's just a test just to see how far I can relax into the cold wave of a note. when everythi
