Yo Phil! If you were still alive I'd totally hang out with you, ya know. You'd play some of your songs and I'd sing along, and we'd get ourself all worked up over the same issues, and laugh bitterly when people say we're just idealistic 'cause they have no idea. We could share a bottle of booze and a joint, and tap into the same upward spiral of black-humoured philosophy that leaves us dizzy and past our energy peak. Then we'd split paths, and go to our beds groggily, and meet up the next day to do it all over again. But you're dead, Phil, and have been since long before I first heard your music. All that'll ever rest me is to spin your records. So that's what I'm gonna do. I love you, man.
