I want love, healthcare & LSD for everyone. Capitalism causes the most suffering in this world & damage to Earth. I want for all armies to be abolished.

Track Name: A Bird of Arabia
[... I]n the dark; changes blowicks into bullocks and a well of Artesia into a bird of Arabia; the handwriting on his facewall, the cryptoconchoidsiphonostomata in his exprussians; his birthspot lies beyond the herospont and his burialplot in the pleasant little field; is the yldist kiosk on the pleninsula and the unguest hostel in Saint Scholarland; walked many hundreds and many score miles of streets and lit thousands in one nightlights in hectares of windows; his great wide cloak lies on fifteen acres and his little white horse decks by dozens our doors[...?]

More poestries from Chickspeer's with gleechoreal music or a jaculation from the garden of the soul? Of I be leib in thee immoralities? O, you mean the strangle for love and the sowiveall of the prettiest? Yep, we open hap coseries in the home. And once upon a week I improve on myself I'm so keen on that "New Free Woman" with novel inside. [...]

Who still pursues th' adult'rous art,
Cocksure that rusty gown of his
Will make fair Sue forget his phiz!
