When I lie down to sleep, I have the same dream of a world-famous actress in a pink limousine. And she flies through the sky in that pink Cadillac, while the boys of the press, we drink vodka in back. And she tells us our fortune by crumbling leaves, and she teaches us card tricks — the Jack makes us weak.

(“She Divines Water,” Camper Van Beethoven)
