I love you I hate you

As his eyes open he sees bright neon lights after passing a giant rainbow
The monoliths emerge and he again reaches the city called Sin city
So many sweet memories in so short a time
Passion, pain, loss, gain. taxing my dizzied brain.
I love you i hate you

the noise increases in the cerebellum 2001 a space oddyssey
How to put it into words? You have to see the movie.
Only the experiential fast forward of this city can cure it.
Otherwise it's there now. Calling me to come
otherwise my brain goes hummmmmm.

Have you been to Sin city?
Then you know what I mean.
Multiply your life's pace times ten and then
Fold it over space and back again
I love you I hate you for what you've done

Like a little toy drummer beats over and over incessantly
Like a little toy monkey bangs two cymbals together
I hear the words repeating constantly
Las Vegas Las Vegas Las Vegas
and then Hummmmmmmmmmmm
I love you I hate you
