(You can smell the spilled bong-water, canít you? Thereís a certain mindset that automatically finds profundity in oxymorons - itís as if they believe that something so manifestly false must be true.

Musician #1: We are all human!

Musician #2: Yes, we are all human.

We share the same passions, the same needs.

Yes, our hearts beat in the same eternal rhythm.

We have loved, and lost, and yearned and desired.

Yes, many are the passions of life.

Every head, hand and heart stretches up towards the divine.

Yes, we contain within us the seeds of eternity.

We all realize that we are but rude clay, defined by our imperfections, redeemed by the spark of grace.

Yes, life is a process of confronting that which is evil and base, and turning our essence to a higher purpose.

Yes, well, our gods can beat up your God. We have one god with three times the arms of your Allah.

Filthy pigdog!

Raper of Kashmir!
