A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM JEFF RAU:
..may i also put in my personal request for a revival of “drink me”. i know, i’m stuck on the early stuff. i gotta move on to twentyfirstcenturymac.... the mac of the people, no longer pretending to be caught up in the mysticism of the rockstar lifestyle, rather living it with guitar saliently blazing from his pelvis like an extraordinarily massive musical erection. his explosive talent is our joy, and his joy is our wet dream. his makeup is only a crumb of what lies hidden in his pockets. he is....twentyfirstcenturymac.

Mac: this one's for you, Jeff!
(the lyrics to this song were actually a creative writing assignment in high school up in thunder bay, ontario. i always thought it was like Alice in Wonderland but with more birds.)

lyrics

“catch the sun,” she said, “and ride it into me.
i’ll eat you when you drink me..”
i’ve seen the way her tongue waves out to crash
her diseased dinners back on shore (crippled)
to be picked apart by condors.
my inability to swim with the current disquiets me
as her twilight undertow swallows me.

“swoop down,” she said, “like a pelican would
to quench his evening thirst except…
don’t feel that you can take part of me
and get away so easily..

"drink me.. and drown in me..”
