He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album.
All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. But even after admitting this, there is no catharsis; my punishment continues to elude me, and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself. I left her in a parking lot behind some donut shop.
My pain is constant and sharp, and I do not hope for a better world for anyone. I killed Bethany, my old girlfriend, with a nail gun, and some man uh some old faggot with a dog last week. I have tapes of a lot of it, uh some of the girls have seen the tapes. I ate some of their brains, and I tried to cook a little. And I'm not sure I'm gonna get away with it this time.
Some girls in the apartment uptown uh, some homeless people maybe 5 or 10 um an NYU girl I met in Central Park.
You're my lawyer so I think you should know: I've killed a lot of people.
But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.
And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.
Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke.
I killed another girl with a chainsaw, I had to, she almost got away and uh someone else there I can't remember maybe a model, but she's dead too. I killed Paul Allen with an axe in the face, his body is dissolving in a bathtub in Hell's Kitchen. I guess I'll uh, I mean, ah, I guess I'm a pretty uh, I mean I guess I'm a pretty sick guy.
So, if you get back tomorrow, I may show up at Harry's Bar, so you know, keep your eyes open.
