The only people for me are the mad ones,
The ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,
Mad to be saved, desirous of everything at
The same time, the ones who never say a
Commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn,
Like fabulous yellow roman candles
Exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes “Awwww!”
