Thanks for the welcome, Lizzy! I'm actually from the US.

I thought of another line to add, although it isn't in his music - "Never make decisions when you have to pee." It's from Beautiful Losers. I use it all the time.

I loved all of your line choices, and wanted to contribute some of my own: (this one has been pulling at me lately): We were locked in this kitchen I took to religion and I wondered how long she would stay I wanted so much to have nothing to touch I've always been greedy that way -T...
