We are all aliens put here to make love and play music. Our subatomic particles are exponential in their ability to morph; we can be anything. Patience and responsibility are the apex of humanity, and we are all one. Come listen to the heartbeat of my drum, feel my joys and sorrows, take your never ending energy and turn them into the sweet nectar of love.
