    I follow no other tempo than the one the flow of the Universe, no less, dictates me!

    Yes, the Universe is my metronome, and the rhythm I play is love:

    My hearts yearning crest against eternity's shore!

    Yup!

    In fact there is...

    Guess you've never been in the fortunate position of a Metal Zone then?

    The pedal also known as pure bliss..... or was it blight?

    You want the truth?

    Well, you can't handle the truth!:

    You might do prose well, and pose like the pros
    The hos can tell that your faking though, and won't do your hose
    But when I hit the low E it is poetry

    You might be able to follow the rhythm if you know the stanza
    But follow my flow and you'll fly like a dancer
    Or stumble and fall, cause this ain't no Sunday ball
    no known steps, or pre-rehearsed shat
    just pure existence and the essence of it
    so live in the now or wave your presence goodbye

    You know:
    Play it and live it, if you dare
    - or forget it!

    Yo!

    -Quote: Me, just now

    Or simply:

    I'm a poet, don't you know it?
    And the winds, you can blow it!

    - Quote: Syd Barrett, from Bob Dylan Blues

    I tried playing with my heart today, but when I held my bass up to my chest, no matter how hard I tried, my heart just couldn't pluck the strings.

    Sorry, didn't mean to break your heart.

    I should have specified, you got to use a dried heart valve from a wild unicorn and use it as a pick, otherwise you'll get a bloody mess and risk ending up dying!

    I mean I truly do love playing bass....

    But I won't do that!

    It's not like it's worth dying for.

    The average resonant frequency of the human body 2Hz which converts to 120 bpm which is the tempo at which the Stones played Sympathy for the Devil at Altamont in 1969. Coincidence?
