OUTRO/FADE

[D] [E7]

Hey caller, I want you to put down what you were doing, put down everything you have ever done. Tear it to pieces. You’ve got to forget everything. Soon you are going to be old, your hair’s gonna fall out, you are going to die, you are gonna cease to exist. Before you do I want you to look upon this scene; – two sickly blonde Anglo-Saxon heads passing beneath the barrel of a magic wand. Isn’t it sweet? I don’t care, I want no part of it. I just want to look into Loftholdingswood. I want to look look look look look look look look look look look look look look look and mourn.
