Which practically conceal its sex.

In such a fix to be so fertile.

Penn Radio, (Richard Dawkins interview), by Penn Jillette


Caught up in a whirlwind, can't catch my breath
Knee deep in hot water, broke out in a cold sweat
Can't catch a turtle in this rat race
Feels like I'm losin' time at a breakneck pace
Tightrope, by Stevie Ray Vaughan
