GLP: "Banditos", The Refreshments

And everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people, so meet me at the mission at midnight, we'll divvy up there; everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people -- I've got the pistol so I get the pesos -- yeah and that seems fair.

That chorus stuck with me that year. It was 1996, if I remember right, and I had the radio on that summer. Someday I want to burn myself a CD with all the songs from that year that tweak my brain, just so I can play it to remember how it felt.

The caffiene's bringing it all back. Sis said this morning that when I was on the caffiene last night, I was doing everything but the tooth-grinding to look like a crack fiend. I didn't notice. When you haven't been using it, it's a strong, perhaps too strong, stimulant...

So put the sugar in the tank of the sherriff's car...

Something tells me that it's time to go back there again. I'll need to own my brain before I can do anything with it. Having my own room that feels like mine, that's decorated just so, is a start. The long lonely nights are another start. I haven't seen my best friend in almost four months, which is a long time for anyone. Another start. This time, though, I've a best friend who isn't in any danger of immediate death, though he still doesn't communicate...

Well, it's you and me baby no one else we can trust -- We'll say nothin' to no one no how or we bust, and never crack a smile or flinch or cry for nobody -- uh-uh

One best friend, check. One sense of isolation, check. One hellishly busy schedule, check. Not enough sleep, check. Are we ready for liftoff? Are those O-rings solid?

So just how far down do you want to go
Well we could talk it out over a cup of joe
And you could look deep into my eyes
Like I was a super-model
Uh-huh

Well, it's you and me baby no one else we can trust
We'll say nothin' to no one no how or we bust
And never crack a smile
Or flinch or cry for nobody
Uh-uh

Chorus:
Well give your ID card to the border guard
Yeah, your alias says you're Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Of the United Federation of Planets
'Cause he won't speak English anyway

Everybody knows
That the world is full of stupid people
So meet me at the mission at midnight
We'll divvy up there

Everybody knows
That the world is full of stupid people
Well I got the pistol so I get the Pesos
Yeah and that seems fair


So put the sugar in the tank of the sheriff's car
And slash the deputy's tires and they won't get very far
When they finally get the word
That there's been a hold-up uh-huh
