every narrator is unreliable

okinawa is full of cats
okinawa is full of cats
   and not jazz cats
        not alley cats
            not coooool cats          no no


i burst into your basements
  with an alliterative yawp
i burst into your basements
  with an alliterative yawp


i tell you to be true
i tell you to be false
i show you how to dance
  up the laminated walls


i tell you to be callous
  with my omnipotent phallus
i tell you to be callous
  with my omnipotent phallus


i paint you a picture
of colour and light
and when i break your heart
  you know i am right


okinawa is full of hats
okinawa is full of hats
   and not baseball hats
        not top hats
            not foooool hats          no no
