Processed by "reverse osmosis".
Enhanced with "vitamins".
Wrapped in plastic.

Give us your money so we can build unnecessary things.
I've looked up, loved, and talked.
In return I am loved and replies are heard.
I'm helped by the most familiar stranger beyond the sky.

Ew why is that young lady dressed like a slut trying to tempt me
Even though she's only walking to Wal-Mart
And it's in the middle of summer
Dead Man's SwitchIn control, then not -
Sudden loss of grip.

On a fast track -
With or without a god?
