Oh the demise of the cel├ębutantes…
Oh how I enjoy it so, my guilty pleasure.
Rehab-Lite and an umbrella to your ex’s SUV.
Am I watching E! or is this a new episode of COPS??
I can’t tell anymore…

Today’s music is for these lost souls of L.A.
La La Land.

Violent Femmes – 12 Steps

I think I’m powerless over this.
Only a power greater
than me
could store my synergy.

I took my will
into no will but thy will.
Made a moral inventory of my
moral story.

One step, two step, three step, four.
Five, sex, seven, on the eighth step, more.
Nine step,
ten step, eleven step twelve.
Only twelve step get me out
of hell.

I was wrong, I say to myself.
And I say
to everybody else.
My character needs a caretaker.
Under God.
Who would remove my shortcomings and my
highgoings.
I made a list of everyone I dissed and pissed
on.
And I will make amends to correct this.

One
step, two step, three step, four.
Five, sex, seven, on the
eighth step, more.
Nine step, ten step, eleven step
twelve.
Only twelve step get me out of hell.

I will do it directly unless
this causes injury.
I will admit to be full of shit as soon
as I’m aware of it.
Seek through prayer and meditation
to keep God in communication.
Now my spirit is week, I say
wake up in love and go to sleep in hate.

One step,
two step, three step, four.
Five, sex, seven, on the eighth
step, more.
Nine step, ten step, eleven step twelve.
Only twelve step get me out of hell.

I am getting
powerless over this.
I have become powerless over this.
I have become powerless over this.
