Passion is a discontinued brand.
Can you give me some agreement on a Saturday night?
Can I get an AMEN from the front row,
and possibly a HALLELUJAH from the back?
Say you all so?
Now goddamn stand and speak, the lot of you.
Stand, and be counted, and hold thyself not a hypocrite,
for you wander not in the land of Sodom or Gomorrah;
you are made of flame and pulse and must break yourself
on the rocks of the liquid shore.
let slip the dog days of summer
out the still winter of thine own blood,
for you are always treading the plains of milk and honey;
and I have seen the future ripe, and full,
and for what you want,
I say surely you shall not perish,
rise in shaking ecstasy at the light of dawn.
Now goddamn stand and speak.
