Lyrics: ‘Gatsby Versus Love’

We are the men in black
Talking of Burroughs and Kerouac.
We keep it up through a blank façade
“Have you read the Marquis De Sade?”

Nothing as dull as faux intelligencia
Take your De Quincey and get away with ya.
Yes, you’re clever but we sail above
As we unravel the secrets of love
The secrets of love.

We sit in libraries
Converse in solemn hushed morbid tones.
From Fitzgerald to Dante and Plath
We seek the cleverest 3 book loans.

Nothing as dull as faux intelligencia
Take your De Quincey and get away with ya.
Yes, you’re clever but we sail above
As we unravel the secrets of love
The secrets of love.

No great novels
Just emotion and heart
Sometimes love makes for beautiful art.
Makes for beautiful art.
