Song Dedicated To Le Crickette

I saw a cricket today, and thought about my life and all of our lives, and the fear I sensed in him as I ran up to him ready to attack. When he ran, I ran after him like a cheetah in the Serengeti .. but when he stopped, when he was cornered, I felt like a monster. I was a monster in that moment, and I couldn't do it-- "Kill him!" she ordered. I couldn't.

And so I was shoved out of the way for someone else to take care of sir Cricket.
Rest in Peace. 



I thought about our lives:

"Weatherman"
His skin was soft as leather
I'm the weatherman
No one else more dedicated
I'm the weatherman
Well, hey kid
You got the right
But the choice to kill
No, Son of Sam
Will let you in to turn against
Addicted to the love of ourselves
I'm the weatherman
I tell no one else
I'm the weatherman

So go for the kill
Cause no one else cares
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill

His skin was soft as leather
I'm the weatherman
There's no on else worth the dedication
I'm the weatherman
Cause hey kid
You got the heart without the ache
Pretentious thieves
Have you believe it's theirs to take
Addicted to the love of ourselves
I'm the weatherman
And tell no one else
I'm the weatherman

So go for the kill
Cause no one else cares
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill

For here's the history we make
For luck of our Fathers
(If I could be anywhere I wouldn't be here)
No future or good night
(If I could be anywhere I wouldn't be here)
No future fans
(If I could be anywhere I wouldn't be here)

I sing for the melody and I sing for a reason
And I'll sing as the neglect for all that un-American

So go for the kill
Cause no one else cares
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill, Go for the kill
Go for the kill

Los angeles has so few crickets.. the cockroaches are the dominate species. They are the size of mice.

It must be easier to use raid on them than on these tiny crickets.

very um... unique story

it's not completely about the cricket =)
