- None Of This Makes Sense, Honey

* Names were changed in order to provide anonymity, phonetic beauty and a more vivid impressionist aura to the song.

"None of this can be true in a greater space than a human brain, which is infinite."
Maurice Verbaine, 1923


Betty, do you really think you‘ll meet someone?
Let me tell you that it can‘t be done and it won‘t!

Or Melinda, do you really believe in yourself?
Let me tell you there is no one else who does!

Nobody will be there for you my dear!
You might think there are a lotta good people ‘round here...
They‘ll all disappear!

Hey Johanna, are you tired of feeling blamed
For everything that you have done and said?
Well good luck with that!

Angelina, has it not ever occurred to you
That your actions, yeah, those things you do
Have consequences?

Nobody will be there for you my dear!
Everyone who isn‘t gone already will disappear!
I guess that’s hard to hear!

Mona, do you still like being yourself?
I‘d say you should try being someone else!
It would solve many problems!

Or Hazel, do you picture yourself a righteous girl?
Do you still think you might change the world?
Well the world doesn‘t care!

Nobody will be there for you my dear!
Everyone will bear a child or at least plant a tree!
You‘re not one of these

Sweet honey, see even I cannot recall your name!
Sadly, there is no one else to blame but you
