spoken word intro excerpted from a 1993 mckenna lecture called 'the taxonomy of illusion'

the line 'i love you to the max' is cribbed from a silver jews song called 'punks in the beer light' (tho i use this same line in an old glass random song, so the reference here is maybe more to do with 'just singing the same songs', or whatever) (also notably, that same line is co-opted by les savy fav in the song 'appetites', so do with that information what you will).


i'm falling behind, i'm leaving it right where i need it
i'm always alive, but not as alive as i need it
and it falls, and it falls, and it falls apart again
and you call, and you call, and you call and it never ends

if nothing is real, well how am i supposed to feel?
cause nothing is real, but i need a way to deal.

there's nothing to prove,
i'm not going to lose myself thinking we don't get to choose.
we don't see our eyes when they're blinking.

and it flows, and it flows, and it flows around again.
and it goes, and it goes and it goes and you just pretend.

if nothing is wrong, then why do i just sing the same songs?
cause nothing is wrong, but nothing is left when i'm gone.

i love you to the max
i love you to the max
i love you to the max
i love you to the max
i love you to the max
i love you to the max
i love you to the max
i love you to the max
