There is often a dimension of danger and displeasure in desire. But then desire is designed to elevate your senses, take you out of yourself and your fears. While the world may be ending, I still want you. Or at least, I still want the dream of you.


Like a ruby in my shoe,
Like all the messages that won't get through,
I want to make sure you are in my dreams.

Another shooting down in Birmingham,
The trees are all diseased, you know it's such a shame,
I'd like to take you home with me, but I don't remember your name.

The tide is rising higher; it's around my knees,
I know your lips will lie but they taste so sweet,
The world is ending, we can just do as we please.
