Selling Ecstasy

Selling ecstasy in Madison 
In 1990 
America's greatest playboy 
Got me into the scene 

 First time rolling on the carpet 
To the drugged outbursts of Shaun Ryder 
You made me find myself 
Among the lost souls of America

 I first realized I could love a man 
Even though I can't 
Not with sex or philosophy 
But with a little pill and an early morning kiss

 My friends were temporary diversions from pain 
The horror of human fate was felt too deep 
Evolution's greatest blunder watching television 
Pallid preachers with bibles and bombs

 I was blind to the beauty of a smile 
Henry Miller was God on Earth but 
Ecstasy is better than reading and 
Dancing is better than sleeping

 If life is just a good night "down the pub" 
then you are like the pill I took beforehand 
You keep me alive and poison my liver 
The only two things that matter
