Y'know the real world, this so called real world, is just something I put up with like everybody else.
I'm in my element when I am a little bit out of this world. Then I'm on the beam. Because when I'm falling I'm doing all right; when I'm slipping I say hey, this is interesting.
It's when I'm standing upright that it bothers me. I'm stiff.
As a matter of fact, I'm really slipping most of the time, into that glimpse.
I'm like a slipping glimpser.
